This green tropical smoothie will have you feeling recharged. It’s packed with healthy fats, protein, fiber, and antioxidants. My girls approve of this smoothie. It's a healthy green start to our day. The freshness from the cucumber and spinach, the natural sweetness from the bananas and dates have my girls and I craving more.

I like to freeze my fruits beforehand; it’s the best way to thicken up the smoothie without watering it down with ice.



Ingredients:

1/2 cup frozen cucumbers chunks

1/2 cup frozen sliced bananas

1 cup frozen pineapple chunks

1 cup fresh spinach

3 pitted dates*

1 tbsp hemp seeds

1 cup almond milk

Toss all ingredients into a blender.

Blend until smooth.


Enjoy!

Notes*

Placing dates in a bowl of water for a few minutes beforehand will soften them up, making them easier to blend
