As much as I am a cold weather girl and will take fall and winter over summer in a heartbeat, I’m a tropics fruit girl at heart. Pineapple, papaya, watermelon, passion fruit and more.

SO obviously this smoothie is a go-to for me all the time.

I’m currently digging this smoothie cause it takes me back to the humidity that is Panama and snacking on pineapple while hanging out in a hammock.

Before we jump into this spicy, minty green smoothie I wanna share something with you guys.

 I just discovered my favorite coffee joint here in ABQ Humble Cafe I’m obsessed.

 OH, and I have something fun to share with you all. Or maybe you won’t find it as exciting. I started drinking cow milk again, raw milk. At first, I was like this is so gonna make me sick, it didn’t. I’m not gonna say I like to cook with it cause I don’t, it’s more of I’ll drink some maybe warm with cinnamon or cardamon.

After discussing this with Kate, I realized why not, if my body can digest it, it’s NON-GMO, grass-fed, organic. Why not?

OBSESSED. I still make my smoothies with nut milk, I’m currently making my own nut milk and having a blast with that.

Back to smoothie land.

The awesomeness of the smoothie is the interesting combo between the ginger and mint. I love how they balance out the sweetness of the pineapple. To make it creamy, I use cashew yogurt and frozen bananas.

 I am really into Vital Protein Collagen Beauty Green right now and love adding it to all my smoothies, I love how the flavor doesn’t change at all and I get a bunch of health benefits.

I’ll be writing a post on why I’m such a huge collagen fan soon.

I’m gonna go workout now and then make this smoothie cause it’s really good and good news is I have all the ingredients in my fridge/freezer.

SO. Go ahead jump into the green smoothie wagon.

this is the cashew yogurt brand I use, you can make your own if you wish, one green plant has a really cool and easy recipe. I haven’t tried it yet if you do let me know.
