Smoothies are a favorite in my house, so I try to make them as nutritious as possible. My orange cream and blueberry banana smoothie are packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants, but the addition of greens packs a powerful punch of nutrients.

My kale smoothie and this Pineapple Green Smoothie include a whopping 2 cups of greens, and my teenage taste testers give them both two big thumbs up.

Any which way I can get them to consume more produce is a win in my book.

If you’re skeptical of green smoothies, this Power Green Pineapple Smoothie will really surprise you.  You can taste the greens, but the pineapple and apple makes this so sweet and refreshing that you don’t mind a bit.  

My boys are downing them like they’re milkshakes, which is definitely saying something. πŸ™‚

Ingredient notes

  • Power greens. I use power greens for salads all the time, which includes baby kale, spinach and Swiss chard. My boys really like them, so there’s a whopping 2 cups in this green pineapple smoothie! Feel free to use your favorite greens.
  • Frozen pineapple. I used fresh pineapple in this simple green smoothie, which I cut and froze. You can buy frozen pineapple at the store, but if you use fresh pineapple be sure to add 1/2 – 1 cup of ice to make the smoothie nice and frosty.  
  • Green apple. The green apple adds a nice dimension in flavor and also thickens the smoothie up slightly.  
  • Almond milk. Sub the almond milk with your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk. I’ve also made this with coconut water, which turned out great as well.  
  • Chia seeds. Chia seeds are nutritional powerhouses, so I love throwing them into my smoothies, overnight oats, or make chia pudding.
