This pineapple spinach smoothie transports you straight to summer. This smoothie uses spinach and pineapple for a healthy and naturally sweet smoothie. It's got tropical flavors and is so delicious!
I've been buying a lot of baby spinach. And I've been putting it into smoothies. I love smoothies. And it's easy to just throw in a bunch of spinach, and voila! A tropical green smoothie that tastes delicious.
For this pineapple spinach smoothie, I paired the spinach and pineapple with almond milk. You can also easily use orange juice, oat milk, or even just water. Both times I've had this smoothie in the past week has been in the afternoon, so it's been a nice dessert.
Why make this smoothie:
- It's an easy, healthy way to get in a lot of nutrients.
- It's delicious and a vegan smoothie.
- The pineapple gives a natural sweetness that doesn't need any added sugar.
- Baby spinach leaves - I love to grab a bunch of organic spinach at the store, so I always have it handy for smoothies like this and salads.
- Frozen pineapple - It's nice to keep frozen pineapple around! If you've cut up your own pineapple, pop it into a freezer-safe bag for use later! If you're using fresh pineapple, then you'll want to add a handful of ice to the smoothie to cool it down.
- Almond milk - I almost always use almond milk, but you can also use oat milk or soy.
- You can use kale instead of spinach in the smoothie, if you prefer.
- I used almond milk, but you can also use orange juice if you want a juice-forward smoothie.
- If you'd like, you can also throw in a banana for some extra sweetness.
- For extra nutrients, throw in some ground flaxseeds, hemp seeds, or chia seeds. You can also add a scoop of Greek yogurt for extra creaminess and protein.
- You can easily add in some mango or coconut to add more tropical flavors.
- For more tropical vibes, you could use coconut milk instead of orange juice or almond milk.
How to make the smoothie:
Throw the spinach, pineapple, and almond milk (or your preferred liquid!) into the smoothie and blend. I do find it blends easiest if I add the spinach, then the pineapple, then pour the orange juice/almond milk over the top.
Also a game-changer? Getting a really good quality blender to make smoothies. We got this BlendTec blender a few years ago and it is worth every penny. We use it to make smoothies, frozen cocktails, blend soups, etc. It blends SO much better than the cheap $30 blender I was using before. Honestly, it's just one of those purchases that makes me happy.
I hope you enjoy the pineapple smoothie with spinach!
