A.K.A. "Leprechaun Smoothie"
St. Patrick's Day was a good excuse to get my family to try green smoothies. This was a big hit even after I told the kids about the spinach! (I did have them try it first.)
¼ of a pineapple (without the core*)
1 large bunch of green grapes
2 cups fresh spinach
1 mango (optional – I didn’t have one)
1 scoop natural vanilla ice cream like Breyers (optional)
1/2 c ice
1/2 -1 c cold water
Blend all ingredients in a Vitamix until smooth.
*Including the pineapple core gave it a coarser (pulpy) texture.
