Piña Colada Green Smoothie

I know that the idea of a green smoothie really turns some people off, but I promise you- you can’t taste the spinach at all! It does have a bright green color, but the flavor of the fruit really overpowers everything else. If you haven’t tried a green smoothie, this is a good one to start with!

1 cup pineapple, fresh or frozen, cut into chunks
3 tablespoons coconut flakes, unsweetened OR 1 tablespoon coconut flakes, sweetened
1 cup skim milk (or coconut milk or water is awesome in this!)
dash of coconut extract
