Pina Colada Smoothie
2 oranges, peeled & seeded
1 cup fresh or frozen pineapple
2 cups kale or other greens
2 cups water or almond/coconut milk
¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut (optional: if you have a high powered blender)
OR 1/4 cup canned coconut milk (which is thicker than the cartons)
Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. If the oranges leave stringy pieces in your smoothie, then juice them first and use only the juice in the blender. This makes enough smoothie for two people.
Citrus Zinger Smoothie
2 frozen bananas
2 oranges, peeled or just the juice
½ organic lemon, juiced w/ ¼ of peel
3 dates, chopped
2 cups greens (kale, spinach, swiss chard)
2 drops Young Living Citrus Fresh essential oil
1 & 1/2 cup water (or 1 cup almond milk)
Put all ingredients into the blender and blend on low, then moving to high until smooth.
This has a nice sweet and sour taste.
