“Green is the new black.”
First, I’ve never quite loved these phrases…. black is the only black, duh. That’s why it’s black.

Second, while I’m a big lover of creation and I understand why people are saying it, green is not the new black.  Navy is… it’s so in right now…. classy but fresh.

Thirdly, “green is the new black” most definitely does not work in this post.  Because I’m talking about smoothies, and I’ve DEFINITELY not had a black smoothie. I like to think of myself as an adventurous eater but a black smoothie doesn’t sound like something I want to try.

Now that I just talked about black smoothies, green doesn’t sound so bad does it!?

Good! Because it is, indeed, extremely good. Full of very good for you things like almonds, coconut water, oranges, mango and spinach.  Sound weird? Nope, but it is extremely refreshing.

What is also great about this recipe is that its prepared and frozen ahead of time so all you have to do is throw the frozen mix in the blender with either more coconut water or regular water. Easy peasy.

Pinterest has been a great source of entertainment that you’ve probably noticed from this and this.  It also has led me to some really delicious recipes which is exactly where I found this smoothie idea. Keep the pinning coming!
