A sweet and creamy green smoothie, with all the flavors of the tropics along with a good dose of superfoods thrown in as well!
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1 ripe banana, peeled and cut into chunks
1 cup frozen mango cubes
1–2 cups liquid, coconut milk, a peeled orange, or coconut water, see notes
4 cups baby spinach, start with less if you’re new to green smoothies
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
3–4 Tablespoons flax meal or chia seeds
2 servings Hawaiian spirulina
2 servings protein powder or collagen
Place all the ingredients into the blender in the order listed. If you’re using any of the superfoods/extras, place them into the blender before you add the greens.
Secure the lid and blend until smooth.
Serve immediately for best flavor, or refrigerate and drink within half a day.
Add more or less liquid depending on how thick you like your smoothie. I usually add 1 cup of coconut milk from the can along with 1/2 of a peeled orange.
The nutritional information has been calculated with the liquid combination I described above and with 4 Tablespoons chia seeds, and 2 teaspoons spirulina.
