Key Lime Pie Green Smoothie (with Napa Cabbage and Spinach)


 My Mother loves key lime pie, so I created this smoothie for her.  She belongs somewhere tropical with her toes in the sand.  I can't eat a piece of key lime pie without thinking of her.  This smoothie is a creamy, tart treat, secretly hiding the goodness of napa cabbage and spinach.  The avocado and banana both help to make it creamy like pie.  How could you have a bad day if you had this for breakfast?  You may be able to close your eyes and pretend you're on the beach, too!





Ingredients~

2 limes, peeled
3 leaves of Napa cabbage
1 cup spinach (mine was frozen)
1/2 avocado
1 banana
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup coconut milk (unsweetened vanilla flavor)
1 Tbsp. honey (or coconut nectar)
1 packet of stevia
small handful of ice

Blend all ingredients together, placing the limes in first.  You may need to add a little water to thin it out slightly.  Enjoy!
