Tropical Smoothies

When we went on a cruise a few years ago to the Eastern Carribean we stopped on the island of Dominica. We saw a sign that said "Best smoodies on da island" and it made us laugh! This recipe for tropical smoothies reminds me of those island "smoodies" and they are so tasty on a hot summer day! The best part about these smoothies is how good they are for you. Give this one a try!

1/2 cup water
1/2 lime, peeled
1 medium banana, peeled
1 cup fresh spinach, washed
1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh is best but canned will work)
1 cup ice cubes

1. Place all ingredients into a vita-mix or high powered blender in the order listed.

2. Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to variable 10, then switch to high.

3. Blend for 1 minute or until desired consistency is reached. Drink immediately.
