Green Smoothie


 Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a delicious holiday season.  (I know I did!)  So I'm back to the gym and trying to eat healthy.  January should will be full of healthy, vegetable filled meals and snacks around here on Meats + Sweets.  

Here's a smoothie to start your year out right.  I've been craving green juices like crazy but have no juicer so this is my solution.  (Those of you with a vitamix blender, I envy you.) 

Makes 20 ounces.  Enough for 2 smoothies. 

Green Smoothie

1 cup frozen pineapple

1/2 cup seedless cucumber, chopped

Leaves of 2 stalks kale, ripped into small pieces

juice of half a lemon

1 cup coconut water

1/2 cup fat free greek yogurt 

Blend all ingredients in a blender until very smooth.  Drink and enjoy!
