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

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

The trick is to use TROPICAL fruits such as pineapple and mango. They’re naturally sweeter and cover up the greens more easily!

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

Ingredients

Notes about the ingredients needed for this Peanut Butter and Chocolate Frozen Yogurt Bark recipe are below. Jump to recipe for the exact measurements.

  • 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, like 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.

Tip for Super Smooth Smoothies

Use a combination of fresh and frozen fruits to make blending the smoothie together so much easier! You can also thaw previously frozen fruit for 15-30 minutes in order to make it softer and easier to blend.

How to Make Spinach Fruit Smoothies

Please see the recipe card below for more detailed ingredient amounts. Jump to recipe for the printable instructions.

1. Combine ingredients in a blender.

Add all of the healthy ingredients to a blender. One that is capable of completely blending up all of the ingredients until they are silky smooth is key! (I use a Vitamix when I’m making more than one smoothie and a Nutribullet when it’s just for me!)

Place the yogurt and spinach closer to the blade and the frozen fruit further from the blade.

Blending Tip

In order to more easily blend frozen ingredients for a smoothie, you’ll want to place the softer ingredients closer to the blade and the frozen ingredients further away from the blade.

2. Blend until silky smooth.

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. You can also add more sweetener, to taste.

Serve with mango and pineapple chunks and a straw.

More Add-Ins to Try

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

Meal Prepping a Smoothie

A little bit of prep work can save you valuable time on a busy morning. All you have to do is measure out the frozen fruit and yogurt into freezer safe bags, then freeze for up to 3 to 4 months.

When you’re ready to blend up the smoothie, let the ingredients thaw for 30 minutes or so, then mix it up with your choice of liquid.

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.
