Pineapple Orange Banana was my favorite flavor of juice when I was a kid, but these days we’re more nutrition savvy, and juice is no longer the breakfast staple it once was. Enter the smoothie… complete with all the fiber, and packed with vitamins and minerals!

I don’t have anything against juice per se, but now that I know there are better options, I tend to steer clear of it (except for fresh pressed juices of course). Regular store bought juice is essentially liquid fruit sugar, and because it’s been pasteurized you’re missing a lot of the live enzymes, along with the vitamins and minerals.

The great thing about smoothies is they’re so much easier to make than making your own juice first thing in the morning. We try to make a couple of green juices at home every week, but I always rely on smoothies to get plenty of produce from day to day.

So if you’re not feeling like a green smoothie first thing, give this one a try – the tropical flavor is bound to pick up your winter blues!

One of my favorite ways to have 2 different flavors from 1 smoothie, is to make this recipe as it’s written and pour half of it into 2 pint jars, (1 for me and 1 for my husband). Next, I add a couple handfuls of baby spinach to the blender with the remaining half of the smoothie along with about a cup of coconut water. After it’s blended I portion it into 2 containers, that way we get a fruit smoothie for breakfast, and a green smoothie for mid-morning!

      I’m not sure what you mean by ‘preserved’ but if you mean canning I don’t think this recipe would work for that, especially because it contains yogurt. There are a couple of options for keeping this longer though, you can freeze the smoothie (it tastes pretty good, but not quite the same as fresh) or you can make freezer smoothie packs, (I linked to my post below on how to make those) in individual servings so that you can make smaller amounts of smoothie at one time. I hope this helps, and be sure to let me know if you have anymore questions!

    Tweaked a little bit and lessened most ingredients, minus the yogurt, plus chai seeds, green tea extract, unflavored protein powder, kale, spinach, and Almost/coconut milk. One of the best green smoothies ever.
