Pineapple Green Smoothie

With a ripe pineapple aging on the counter and 2 kids who refuse to eat it, I had to come up with something fast. I’m always shocked how yummy a smoothie can be with minimal ingredients. There’s no need for protein powder or mixes. Just put some yummy stuff in your blender and let them do their thing.

Simple Pineapple Green SmoothieThe combo of a ripe banana with super sweet fresh pineapple just screams refreshing. Adding in the spinach is just a bonus! This combo is a total winner.

Now all I have to do is buy opaque straw cups so the kids don’t get turned off by the color!

Here’s what I did…

  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 100g ripe pineapple
  • 2 cups (85g) fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup water
  • ~10 ice cubes

Put all ingredients except the once cubes in the blender.

Blend until smooth.

Add the ice cubes and blend again.

Enjoy!

    Just whipped this up as a mid-morning snack – used an over-ripe banana and some canned crushed pineapple. This is awesome!

      As long as it’s raw it will totally work. I use baby and “Regular” interchangeable. It honestly comes down to whichever is on sale at the time. :)

    looks great, but how did you get the weight watchers points since on the new program fruits and vegetables are 0 points? thanks!

    This smoothie looks so refreshing and delicious! It’s a great combination. I also love making healthy smoothie like combination of Avocado and Strawberry. Anyway, I will try this recipe. Thanks for sharing! :-)

    When out bananas are starting to get a little on the dark side we end up throwing them in the freezer. Then when I want to make a smoothie I pull one out and whack it in the microwave for 3040 seconds just to get the peel off. They certainly peel a lot easier when they are over ripe. You tend to get a fuller banana flavor as well.
