Recipe ingredients

Pineapple spinach smoothie ingredients labeled.

Ingredient notes

  • Water: Or substitute your favorite milk or non-dairy beverage for the water. I love almond milk in mine.
  • Avocado: Looking for more protein? Use 1 cup Greek yogurt in place of the avocado.
  • Spinach: Or substitute fresh kale, Swiss chard, or escarole.

Instructions

  • In the bottom of a blender, add water, frozen pineapple chunks, avocado, spinach, and ice cubes (in that order). Blend until smooth.

Recipe tips and variations

  • Yield: This recipe makes 2 servings, 8 ounces each.
  • Storage: Store any leftover smoothie covered in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours (the avocado may oxidize and change the color; to prevent this, cover the top of the smoothie with a thin layer of water, then stir to recombine before enjoying).
  • Customize: Change this smoothie as you see fit, keeping the proportions of liquids and solids. Use a different frozen fruit, change your greens to kale or Swiss chard, or add a spoonful of ground flax, protein powder, or hemp seeds.
  • High-powered blender: For the smoothest results, use a high-powered blender. The two major players are Blendtec and Vitamix, and both are great (I have a Blendtec at home but used a Vitamix in culinary school).

  1. So for the next three months I am doing two smoothies a day because I am trying to get wedding dress ready. LOL. I needed a switch up between my normal go to’s. I was skeptical about this one and it is actually really good. I use make more of this one in the future.5 stars

  2. Thank you so much for the great information and recipe to try! My husband and I both love making juices and smoothies any time of year. For us it is a great way to get all our fruits and veggies in a delicious way, as well as all those beneficial nutrients you mentioned. I love smoothies because I’m on a very strict diet for my health, and most smoothies are packed with nutrition and free from foods that trigger my condition. An added bonus is that they are also somewhat “predigested,” which helps my tummy. My husband prefers to eat vegan, and he also juices (he’s followed Joe Cross’s method from Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead) and drinks smoothies for weight loss. He’s had great results using these methods, and he is always on the hunt for new recipes to add to our growing arsenal of healthy juice and smoothie recipes. We are so glad we found this totally yummy recipe, too! Four thumbs up from us. Thanks again!5 stars
