Tropical Smoothie Shooters All I have to say is this tastes like candy.  Green good for you tropical candy!

These mini smoothies are packed with vitamin C which is great for beauty, glowing skin, anti-aging and decreasing wrinkles.  You want to make sure you get plenty of vitamin C especially in the summer with all the sun and fun going on.

In addition to a healthy complexion, this tropical goodness can boost your immune system, increase your energy, improve digestion, and is healthy for your lovely heart.  It’s an easy way to get in those essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

The coconut water adds in even more hydration and is a great source of electrolytes.  Plus the flaxseed provides us with omega-3 {ALA} fatty acids and a little extra protein.

You can enjoy these as a mid-day snack or for breakfast to brighten your morning.

Recipe makes 5 shooters.

What you need:

  • 1 large handful baby kale
  • ¾ – 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 1 nectarine
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed

Directions:  Place all tasty ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend.  Pour into small shooter glasses, or you can always enjoy this deliciousness as a smoothie.  This recipe would make two smoothies.
