Green Pineapple Smoothies

Check out our favorite green smoothie recipe here — these Green Pineapple Smoothies are loaded with fruits and veggies, think pineapple, spinach, carrots, and apples, and just slightly sweetened with a drizzle of local honey.  We also like to top them off with a garnish of more fresh pineapple, chia seeds, and coconut flakes.


Don’t be skeptical about putting veggies in your smoothie.  It’s so good; I promise!  They add a lot of nutrition but not a ton of flavor so you still get the sweet, fruity taste you expect in a smoothie.


You’ll need a really good blender to cut through the apple and carrots and ice; we definitely recommend Ninja Blenders for just that reason.
