This ultra refreshing Minty Pineapple Cucumber Green Smoothie is perfect in the summer with it’s lighter flavor. The mint adds extra freshness and it’s wonderfully hydrating with the cucumber added in. Plus you get several serving of both fruits and veggies in one smoothie!
3 cups fresh pineapple chunks, 10 ounces
1 medium cucumber, 10 ounces,
2 cups packed baby spinach, washed, 3 ounces
3 small sprigs of mint (or to taste) about 5 grams
1/2 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
1 – 16 ounce bottle citrus kombucha
Slice the ends off the cucumber, and cut it into 4 pieces.
Layer all the ingredients into a high powered blender in the order listed.
Secure the lid and blend starting on low speed and working up to high. Blend until the smoothie is completely smooth, 1-2 minutes.
Serve immediately for best flavor, or pour into containers with lids and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
All green smoothies are best right away but this one keeps really well with only a slight change in flavor.
You can use a whole avocado in this smoothie but it makes the smoothie pretty thick. I just cube up the leftover half and put it in a salad for lunch.
The mint is measured in grams because it’s such a small amount it doesn’t register in ounces. Just add mint to your taste, starting with less because you can always add more and blend again if you’re not weighing out your mint.
