Tropical Paradise Green Smoothie Recipe

I’m not complaining here, but as I write this post from my home for the week — a lovely little Parisian apartment on Boulevard Voltaire — it feels a tad incongruent to be talking green smoothies. Our recent breakfasts have trended closer to the world’s best pain au chocolat than to anything created in a Vitamix. Still, you all know I love a good green smoothie — and when this little European fantasy ends, I’ll be at the front of the line to buy a new American Vitamix. This tropical paradise green smoothie will be one of the first breakfasts I make. It’s a fantasy in its own right, though less continental and a whole lot more tropical.

Tropical Paradise Green Smoothie

I find there's a near-perfect correlation between my tropical smoothie consumption and times of intense stress. (Overseas move in progress? Check.) The balanced and decidedly tropical flavors of this friendly green smoothie are just the ticket to a relaxed state of mind.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut water or pineapple juice
  • 4 cups packed baby spinach leaves
  • 1 frozen banana, peeled
  • 1 very ripe peach, pitted (frozen slices are fine)
  • 1/2 cup packed cilantro leaves and tender stems
  • 1 whole lime, peel and pith removed

Directions

  1. Combine coconut water or pineapple juice with spinach, banana, peach, cilantro, and lime in a blender and process until perfectly smooth.
  2. Serve immediately.

Notes

This recipe does not require a high-speed blender. However, if you're using a regular blender, here are a few tips to ensure perfect smoothness. Slice the banana, dice the peach, and roughly chop the cilantro before adding to the blender. You may also need a little extra coconut water or juice.
