I love having a smoothie in the mornings or after a workout. Though I usually try to stick with green smoothies (less sugar!), sometimes I like to switch it up and have a smoothie more on the fruity side. This is one of my favorite, go-to, smoothie combos. And though it is heavy on the fruit, there is spinach and protein powder, which is going to help keep you full until it is time for your next meal.
Try switching it up by adding more spinach or swapping the coconut water for coconut milk. Thats the great thing about a smoothie, you can make it your own depending on the ingredients you have on hand. Happy blending!
