Beach Babe Smoothie



I love smoothies in the morning, especially in the summertime when it is hot, hot, hot and my apartment feels like the surface of the sun at 7:30 am.  This smoothie will transport you to the shade of a coconut tree on the beach, with crystal blue water lapping at your feet.  It is packed with goodness - tons of protein, chia seeds, spinach, and tropical fruit.  Have you tried chia seeds?  I only recently discovered them, and I am obsessed! They are full of fiber and omega-3s, among other things, and make a fun addition to smoothies, since they have a unique texture.  Try them out in this delicious smoothie!

A few of my other favorites:
Green Goodness Smoothie
Peach Ginger Smoothie
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Chocolate Zucchini Smoothie

Blend until smooth!
