Tropical Smoothie

This is one of my go-to breakfasts, and to be honest, lunch or dinner when short on time. It has everything to make a complete meal--protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs. And, adding a handful of spinach means I am getting that extra boost of iron that those with IBD like myself always need.

I hope you enjoy it, too!
