Smart Pineapple Sage Smoothie (vegan)

Okay, I've been wondering this all summer: what would a green smoothie with sage in it taste like? More specifically, what would a green smoothie with some of my abundant pineapple sage (Salvia elegans) in it taste like?  It smells like pineapple, it tastes slightly like pineapple and a lot like a mild version of the sage you put in your Christmas turkey.  I'm thinking it will have a sharp bitter flavour that will punch through any fruity flavours.  I decide to give it a try anyhow.

Ingredients:
  • Water drained from 1 Young Thai Coconut (gel/meat reserved for another recipe)
  • Handful of cleaned (with water) Pineapple Sage Leaves
  • 2 Bananas
  • 1/4 C. Organic Shredded Coconut (unsweetened)
  • Dash of Cinnamon (optional)
  • Filtered Water - as much as you want (1-2 Cups?)
Whirl up the above in your blender.  

Result: Actually, this is one of the mildest, sweetest Green Smoothies I've ever made. I may try it again and only use 1 banana.  It tastes very tropical.  I think some fresh pineapple would be very nice in this as well.  Sage is an herb with many ascribed natural healing properties.  Go here to read an interesting article from that perspective (also a recipe for Pineapple Sage Pound Cake).
