Superfood Green Smoothie

So of course you need to add fruit to pretty much any superfood smoothie recipe to make it sweet. Pineapple is what we used here. Fresh or frozen can be used depending on what you can find.

It’s always best to use natural sugars in fruit as opposed to adding sugars if at all possible. Pineapple does a nice job of adding the right sweetness. Our watermelon juice is a great one too.

We have a Nutri Ninja which works really well. It has this special button your can push and it pulses on and off long enough to make it just the right consistency. A regular blender would work as well.

You can use fresh or frozen ingredients. Depending on what time of year it is, you could find fresh kale, spinach and pineapple but during the winter you might be better off using frozen. Either way works. Here is the green superfood smoothie recipe that tastes good!

It is great when everything is fresh. On the other hand it is kinda’ nice to have frozen because it makes it more slushy-like and really cold!

Like I said this is the general recipe for a great green smoothie. But when it comes to all recipes you make it your own according to your taste. I hope you enjoy this tasty superfood smoothie!

Green Smoothie with Kale

A high power blender will be needed if your fruit is frozen. Most high speed blenders will work but if yours is an older model it may struggle so defrosting a bit may be helpful. Once you try this to start your day you will want to make this healthy pineapple drink over and over again. Beyond it’s health benefits it is just delish!!

What are some common ingredients in a green smoothie with pineapple?

In addition to delicious pineapple, you can include leafy greens (such as baby spinach, kale, or Swiss chard), a liquid base (such as water, coconut milk, or almond milk).
A source of healthy fats (such as avocado or chia seeds). Other great but optional add-ins would be banana, cucumber, ginger, or lime juice.

Can I use frozen pineapple in a green smoothie?

Yes, frozen fruit in a green smoothie works well. It adds a frosty texture and helps keep the smoothie cool without the need for ice cubes. Frozen pineapple and frozen bananas also provides a sweeter taste compared to fresh pineapple spinach smoothie, which some people prefer.

Can I add protein to a green smoothie with pineapple?

Yes, you can add protein to a green smoothie with pineapple. Options include adding a scoop of protein powder (such as plant-based protein or whey protein), Greek yogurt, silken tofu, or a handful of nuts or seeds. Protein helps make the smoothie more satisfying and can support muscle recovery and growth.

Jump to recipe and let us know if you choose to add something else that turns out to be a hit. Additional sweeteners can be added at the beginning when you are getting used to the flavors. A few options are liquid sweet n low for a sugar free option, agave nectar or a drizzle of maple syrup even.
