Green Pineapple Smoothie - Cook Republic

This green smoothie inspired by a cocktail I once had - a creamy pineapple concoction topped with green foam is absolutely delicious and utterly healthy. A whole punnet of baby spinach leaves and an avocado form the creamy green base while lime and pineapple slices from a can add that tropical sweetness.

When pineapple is in season, I use fresh pineapple but using canned pineapple means that I can make this smoothie year round. This smoothie is super low-sugar so for my younger boy who still likes things a little bit sweet, I add a tablespoon of maple syrup or just some of the liquid from the canned pineapple. Drink up the green goodness!

    Hello! How much pineapple is needed for this recipe? It doesn’t appear in the ingredients list 🙁

    • Sneh

      Fixed now :). 4 thick slices of fresh pineapple or 4-5 slices of canned pineapple.

    This looks great, although you don't reference the pineapple in the ingredient list. How much do you use?
    Thank you!
