Refreshing Island Smoothie (Serves2)

1 cup Aurthur's Smoothie (Pineapple Coconut)*
1/4 Cucumber, chopped
2 cubes Frozen Spinach
6 - 8 cubes of frozen unsweetened coconut or almond milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup Almond Milk (or flax or whatever dairy free option you like)
1 tbsp Cacao Nibs

If you would like to, you can add a teaspoon of ground flaxseed.

  1.  Throw all the ingredients in your blender, put the lid on and hit that button to blend until smooth.
The cucumber in this smoothie counteracts the acidity of the pineapple juice. This smoothie was rejuvenating and a feast for the taste buds. The combination of cinnamon and cacao nibs just gives a delightful flavor to this smoothie!

  • Coconut milk is also high in minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, selenium, zinc, folate. Coconut is high in vitamin C and contains vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamin, vitamin B6, niacin, choline, pantothenic acid and calcium.
  • Improves utilization of blood glucose and insulin secretion and
  • Improves absorption of other nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids and improves digestion.

* If you don't have Aurthur's smoothie on hand, you can substitute your own home made Island Fruit Blend. ( Recipe Below) There is no sugar added to this smoothie, and neither should there be. There is enough natural fructose in it to delight your taste buds without sending you on a sugar high. The green spinach takes care of that, so never fear.


Island Fruit Blend

1 Apple - juiced or 1/4 cup pressed unsweetened apple juice
1 Banana
1/4 cup Pineapple juice
1/4 Coconut  milk (Canned)
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice

What is your favourite "pick me up" after a bad night? I'd love to hear from you.
