Tropical Green Smoothie

One of my friends has this great blog called Modern Healthy Mom. She has a tonne of delicious recipes as well as tips for healthy living! I found this great recipe for a smoothie on there. She didn't have a name for it, so I called it  Tropical Green Smoothie because when I tried it, It tasted like something you would find on a beach somewhere! Perfectly smooth and creamy! My girls and I make this one all the time. Thanks for the delicious recipe! Oh and if you are unfamiliar with the ingredient kefir, check out her blog post about it here.


2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/4 cup kefir
1 banana
4 large frozen strawberries
1/4 cup frozen pineapple
3 cups spinach


Place all ingredients in a blender and enjoy your delicious smoothie!


  1. As a person who is indeed unfamiliar with kefir I have just a couple questions: Where do you buy yours from? Do you buy the grains or does it come in liquid for that you just add to the smoothie? Thanks for the link to her information! Very informative.

  2. I am so glad you make it and love it and your girls drink it too! It's Scarlett's favorite one I make, for sure! I need one now . . .

  3. I love smoothies!!! I am intrigued by kefir. I will definitely be making this one :)
