Ingredients

  • 2 cups packed baby spinach leaves or kale leaves , stems removed
  • 2 cups coconut water , or freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup blueberries or pineapple , pre-frozen (see notes below)
  • 2 large navel oranges , omit if using fresh orange juice above
  • chia seeds , optional

Instructions

  1. If using a powerful blender, such as a Vitamix , place all the ingredients into the blender, except for the chia seeds, starting with the coconut water. Blend until smooth.
  2. If using a regular blender, blend the coconut water with the greens first until completely smooth, then add the remaining ingredients, except for the chia seeds, and blend until completely smooth.
  3. Pour into glasses, top with raw chia seeds, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I prefer my green smoothies cold. Instead of adding ice to make this smoothie cold, use frozen fruit. Simple wash fresh blueberries and freeze them in a freezable ziploc bag ahead of time. If you do not have pre-frozen blueberries, add some ice cubes when blending to make this smoothie cold.
