Pineapple Spinach Smoothie

Who knew getting your fruit and veggies in could taste so good?!

Blend up spinach, mango, pineapple, milk, and yogurt into a filling Spinach Fruit Smoothie that even the kiddos will slurp up. No one can resist the burst of tropical flavor in every sip.

Honestly, with the sweetness from the fruit, you don’t even know the spinach is in there. (Well, except for the beautiful green color!)

It’s a delicious way to get in an extra serving of vegetables.

This healthy smoothie is a great way to detox, or even just to sneak in a good helping of for breakfast or at snack time.

Mix it up in just 5 minutes, or prepare in advance to save even more time on busy mornings!

Spinach, oat milk, honey, frozen mango, frozen pineapple, and yogurt are the ingredients in this recipe.

Ingredients

These are the simple ingredients you need to make this easy pineapple green smoothie:

  • Pineapple. It is best if you use frozen pineapple. This helps with the chilled creamy texture. You can buy already frozen pineapple at the store. Or, you can cut a pineapple when they’re in season and freeze it to use year-round.
  • Mango. You also want to use frozen mango so the smoothie is slushy. Buy frozen mango at the store or cut a mango and freeze it for later.
  • Greens. Fresh spinach is used in this recipe for its mild taste. You can also use another leafy green, kale or arugula, but the flavor and texture may change a little.
  • Milk. Use your milk of choice. Regular or a non-dairy milk, like oat, soy, coconut, or another nut-based milk such as cashew or almond milk, all work well. If needed, you can sub in apple juice or orange juice, or even coconut water.
  • Yogurt. Plain, unflavored yogurt is best. You can use regular, goat’s milk, Greek yogurt, or nut or plant-based yogurt.
  • Sweetener. This is optional. Make the smoothie first and then add in if you would like it sweeter. Mangos and pineapple are normally pretty sweet so you may not need any added sugar. Honey and maple syrup are natural and work great.

How to Make Spinach Fruit Smoothies

Below you’ll find the simple steps to take in order to make this delicious smoothie:

Combine Ingredients

You’re going to want a very good high-speed blender.

One that is capable of completely blending up all of the ingredients until they are silky smooth.

Here is a list of the best blenders for making fruit smoothies:

  • Nutribullet – An excellent personal-sized blender option. Make sure you use the larger cup. You want to be able to fit all of the ingredients without going over the max fill line once it’s blended up.
  • Vitamix – This one has a super powerful leg up on traditional blenders and will give you a perfectly creamy smoothie every time. It is more of a splurge, so it’s really only worth it if you make smoothies, soups, or sauces on a regular basis.
  • Food Processor – A bit of a last resort, but it will do if you don’t have another option on hand!

Add all of the healthy ingredients to a blender.

Place the softer ingredients closer to the blade and the frozen fruit further from the blade.

All of the smoothie ingredients are added to the blender.

Blend it Up

Blend for 1-2 minutes. Run the blender until the smoothie reaches a smooth and creamy consistency.

You might need to add in a little more liquid of your choice if the ingredients aren’t mixing well.

Garnish

Serve with mango and pineapple chunks and a straw.

This pineapple smoothie recipe is a great place to start. Increase the nutritional value by adding any of these healthy but optional add-ins:

  • Nuts
  • Hemp seeds
  • Chia seeds
  • Flax seeds
  • Avocado
  • Fish or flax seed oil
  • Protein powder
  • Turmeric powder
  • Gluten-free oats
  • Leafy greens
  • Other fresh or frozen fruits
Tropical green smoothies are served in a glass with a straw for breakfast.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: Prep this green smoothie recipe in advance to save time for your future self! Pre-portion the ingredients and place them in a freezer-safe bag. Store the bags for up to 3-4 months in the freezer. Let the frozen ingredients sit out for 30 minutes, or slightly thaw in the microwave. Then put in the blender and blend until smooth!
  • To Store: Smoothies are best enjoyed immediately.

Dietary Modifications

The recipe you’ll find below is already gluten-free and vegetarian as written.  Here are some adjustments and substitutions you can make to help it fit your other dietary requirements:

  • Whole30: Make sure to completely leave out the sweetener.
  • Vegan: Choose a plant-based milk and yogurt.
  • Paleo: Use a plant-based milk and yogurt. Also, avoid any unrefined sugar.

Are spinach smoothies healthy?

Yes! Smoothies with spinach and fresh fruits are incredibly healthy for you. Use antioxidant-packed fruit, protein-full milk and yogurt, and any other nutritious add-ins for more benefits like healthy fats and vitamin K. Smoothies, however, can be relatively high in sugar and carbs, so they may not be suited for diabetics or those on a low-carb diet. Learn how smoothies are healthy.

Can you taste the spinach in smoothies?

You can’t really taste the spinach when it’s added to a smoothie. Green smoothies actually taste delicious, and very much like regular frozen fruit smoothies. The sweet fruit almost completely masks the flavor of whatever greens you are using.

Can you freeze spinach for smoothies?

While you can freeze spinach for smoothies, be aware of extra liquid. You might want to add less milk or juice at first.

Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Mix it up. Use a combo of fresh and frozen fruits, which makes for easier blending.
  • Plan ahead. Stock up on fresh pineapple and mango in the summer months and freeze it to use all year round.
  • Taste first. Test the smoothie before sweetening. Mango and pineapple are naturally pretty sweet so you may or may not need any additional sweetener.
  • Load it with greens. Start off with 1 cup of leafy greens and then keep increasing it. You can probably add in 2 cups without much difference in taste.
  • Switch it up. Try different types of greens. Good options are kale, Swiss chard, or arugula.
  • Add a banana. If you’d like to make your smoothie creamier, you can toss in a fresh or frozen banana.
