This tropical-flavored Grumpy Gator Green Smoothie is the perfect power-up sip to get your grumpy gators in a very glad mood. Green smoothies might look scary to green-phobes (both kids and adults!), but one sip and everything will change. Green may be the accent color, but the flavors of this smoothie include: fresh-squeezed citrus, mango, pineapple and banana. The very slight undertone of bitter grassiness from the greens is actually a welcome contrasting flavor to all the fruity sweetness. Give your grumpy gators something to cheer about with this fun, yummy, healthy smoothie. After-school or breakfast approved!..
