During the hot summer months I enjoy starting the day with a bright and refreshing smoothie. What do you like to put in your smoothie?



1/2 cup diced mango

Juice of 1-2 small limes

1 peeled cucumber

1-2 green figs (Trader Joe’s has Organic Green Figs in the freezer section)

1-4 cup(s) of liquid: unsweetened almond milk, coconut water or celery water. Adjust amount of liquid to your taste and thickness desired.

Large handful of cilantro leaves (no stems please)

Large handful of baby spinach


Preparing your Tropical Greens Smoothie

Place the cilantro leaves, cucumber, figs, baby spinach and almond milk in a blender or food processor and purée until smooth.

Add the mango and lime juice and purée once more until you get the consistency you like.

Pour your smoothie into a chilled glass and enjoy!
