Day 26 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Thai Lemongrass Detox Green Smoothie

 YUM, YUM!! This one should be called Tropical Paradise!  I did have to modify a bit … but well worth it!  I had no lemongrass, so I used 1/2 lemon and a handful of spinach.  I used unsweetened dried coconut instead of fresh and I added BOTH pineapple and mango!   Mixed with the Coconut Almond milk it was delish and is definitely a green smoothie I would make again :)!

Day 16 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Tropical Detox Smoothie

Unfortunately, I was quite disappointed in this one…  It didn’t taste “tropical” at all?  Maybe my mango wasn’t sweet enough, I don’t know…  It could also have to do that I left the skin on the mango  — not something I would recommend, at least not if you are using a Ninja! The skin would not liquify, so it was a very “chewy” green smoothie, more like the Pineapple Healing Clense  on Day 1 of the Green Smoothie Challenge.  I used kale for my greens and Coconut Almond Milk for my liquid.  The recipe did say not to use milk, however I was hopeful the Coconut in the milk would enhance the “tropical” flavor … that unfortunately was not the case :(.
