Lime Time Green Smoothie

Last time I was at Costco they had someone there showing off the Vitamix.  Seen it so many times and love that thing. (Wish I had one)  But what I really wanted was a new recipe for a smoothie.  We like the ones we make, but mostly they are the same. (Strawberries, blueberries and bananas with spinach is a common one in out home)  So this new idea to put lime in was a fun find!  Thank you Costco Vitamix sales lady!  You inspired this next recipe!

2 C fruit from the frozen "Mixed Fruit" bag from Walmart minus the strawberries (This will help it to stay more green! So without using the strawberries, the fruits you use are pineapple, mangos, and peaches.)
1 C 100% pineapple juice
2-3 very large handfuls of spinach
1/2 banana
1/4 inch slice of lime, rind and all!

First I put the juice and spinach in the blender and blend until smooth.  Then I add the other ingredients, and blend well.  Add more juice if it's too thick for you.  The slice of lime will flavor the entire drink!  New favorite in our house!


  1. YUM!!! makes me want another! That was so delicious!

  2. That looks so yummy! I'm going to try making that one!
