Tropical Green Smoothie Recipe for St. Patrick's Day

Tropical Green Smoothie

Want to start your St. Patrick's Day (or any day!) off with a little green?  Try this Tropical Green Smoothie!

Tropical Green Smoothie:

1 cup of water {I was going to use almond milk, but the kids drank it all!}
1 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1 cup pineapple chunks, canned
1/2 cup pineapple juice (from the can)
about 1 tablespoon organic, extra virgin coconut oil {from my Earth Fare score}
1/2 - 1 cup ice cubes
Fresh greens, a good handful  {I used Swiss Chard since it's growing in my garden.  But spinach would work as well}.

1.  Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container and secure the lid.
2.  Select Variable 1.
3.  Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10.
4.  Blend for 45 seconds or until desired consistency is reached.
