GREEN-tastic Smoothie of the Day: Pineapple Perfection

What you need:

3 Large handfuls of spinach

2 Large handfuls of kale

1-2   1 inch slices of fresh pineapple (chopped)

1/2 an orange

1 cup frozen strawberries (about 5-6 strawberries)

1/2 banana

1 cup water

1 1/2 cups ice

Handful of wheatgrass (optional) *Wheatgrass is an acquired taste so my advice is to add in a small amount at a time to your smoothies until you find the right taste for you.

*For optimal nutrient content, use organic produce! 🙂

I have to start by saying that not all blenders are created equally, so it may be a trial and error type of situation for you to find the right amounts of ice and water until you obtain that “just right” smoothie consistency.

I put all of the greens (spinach, kale, wheatgrass) into the blender first to shred it up nice and fine (This helps with the consistency).

Then I add in the water along with all of the fruit ingredients as well as the ice. Sometimes it takes shaking the blender around a bit until everything is nicely blended together!

Also if you like one fruit flavor more than another, feel free to put more of that and less of the other. The best thing about making your own smoothie is you can adjust it to your own taste buds 🙂 This recipe makes 2 servings so feel free to share it with friends/family or save it for your next snack/meal of the day!

Have a Greenilicious Day!
