Morning Family Smoothie by Elisabeth Röhm

Elisabeth Rohm3My favorite way to start the morning with my daughter is with a healthy and hydrating smoothie. It’s a great way to infuse us both with electrolytes, potassium, beta-carotene, and antioxidants.

2 cups coconut water
1 cup mango
1 cup pineapple
2 cups spinach


Combine ingredients in your blender or Vitamix and puree until smooth.

Play with the balance of ingredients according to taste or what you have on hand. Substitute kale or collard greens for the spinach. Coconut water makes a great base that kids love. The sweetness of mango and the tartness of pineapple temper the greens; add a banana to sweeten and thicken it up.
