Refreshing recipe for a tropical Green Recipe // The Modern Savvy

Happy Monday! Michelle from favorite, Cupcakes, Cocktails & Kids is back delivering another power-packed recipe, this time a creative take on the popular green smoothie. I love the mix of ingredients sure to kick your week into high gear, and that she poured it over ice.

In the meantime, enjoy Michelle’s Tropical Green Smoothie! 

Tropical Green Smoothie {Makes 2 large glasses}
A handful of your fave greens {I did a mix of kale + spinach + mint}
1/2 cup of fresh mango chunks
1/2 cup of pineapple {can use frozen}
1/2 a frozen banana
1/2 a kiwi
The juice of 1/2 a grapefruit + zest {slice and save the other half for garnish}
1.5 cups of cold coconut water {if you want a thicker milkshake like smoothie you can sub with coconut milk}.
Combine all the ingredients in your blender or Nutribullet and pulse until velvety smooth. Pour over ice and garnish with a grapefruit wedge and fresh mint and enjoy!
