Refreshing Green Hawaiian Smoothie

After making so many green smoothies over the years, you start to think they are all the same. However, just because the ingredients may be similar, it only takes one or two items to impact a difference in flavor. This particular recipe reminds me so much of being in Hawaii. The aroma and flavor are refreshingly sweet and tropical. Enjoy this delicious and filling island treat!

Note: Freezing your fresh fruit ahead of time always makes for a nice cold, creamy smoothie!

Ingredients:
1 scoop raw protein powder 
2 tsp vanilla bean powder 
1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh frozen pineapple chunks 
1/2 to 1 cup fresh frozen mango chunks 
1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh papaya chunks 
2 cups or more fresh spinach 
1 scoop super powdered greens of your choice 
1 T raw coconut butter 
1 large peeled banana 
1 T bee pollen 
5-6 drops clear liquid SweetLeaf stevia 
1 tsp raw honey 
12oz or more fresh coconut water purified water (enough to cover fruit) 
4-5 ice cubes made with purified water

Preparation:
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender, and mix on high until super smooth, creamy and somewhat thick like a shake. Serve cold.
