Like a quick pick me up?  How about a delicious smoothie?  What about the flavor of coconut and pineapple?

Pina Colada Smoothie

This recipe is one that I make all the time and is a definite hit from my new smoothie book.  I have received countless emails from people who have purchased the book and this one seems to get mentioned time and time again.  The memorable flavors make this one – a go to for a lot of people.


  • 4-6 oz unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 cups bunch baby spinach
  • 1 banana
  • 5 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 cup fresh/frozen pineapple chunks
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 2 Tbsp. Flax seed, ground


  1. Place spinach and coconut water in blender
  2. and process on high until liquid. Add
  3. pineapple,mint, and banana and blend until smooth.
  4. Throw in ice cubes  and give it another blend until they are broken up
  5. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip:  You can let the ice cubes adjust the thickness for you or you can always add a hint of water or even some of the pineapple juice( if available) if it is too thick.

Where to Eat in NYC?

I need emails and comments on the best places and must eats in NYC again.  Mrs. Zesty and I are departing tomorrow for anther visit to the big apple.  Would love to hear your ideas of where we should stop and dine.

Have a great day!

Take care
