How to Make a Pineapple Spinach Smoothie

  1. Add ingredients to blender

    Start by adding the fresh spinach leaves to the blender. This nutrient-packed green will provide a boost of vitamins and minerals to your smoothie.

  2. Next, toss in the ripe pineapple chunks. Pineapple's natural sweetness and tropical flair will infuse your smoothie with a delightful taste.

  3. Add the sliced banana to the mix. The banana will not only lend creaminess but also a dose of potassium and natural sugars.

  4. Spoon in the Greek yogurt for a creamy texture and a protein punch. This ingredient will make your smoothie indulgent and satisfying.

  5. Pour in the unsweetened almond milk. Adjust the amount based on your desired thickness. Almond milk adds a nutty undertone without overpowering the pineapple and spinach flavors.

  6. Sprinkle in the chia seeds. These tiny powerhouses are rich in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, adding a nutritional boost to your smoothie.

  7. (Optional) Add sweetness

    If you prefer a touch of sweetness, drizzle in honey or maple syrup. Remember, the natural sugars from the fruits might be sufficient for your taste buds.

  8. Add ice cubes

    Toss in a handful of ice cubes for a refreshing chill. This also helps maintain the vibrant green color of your smoothie.

  9. Blitz until smooth

    Secure the blender lid and blend everything on high speed until smooth and creamy. Pause and scrape down the sides if needed, ensuring all ingredients are well incorporated.

  10. Serve in a glass

    Once the smoothie reaches your desired consistency, pour it into a glass or glasses.

  11. Garnish with a pineapple slice or a sprinkle of chia seeds if desired.

  12. Enjoy!

    Sip, savor, and enjoy the burst of tropical flavors and nourishing nutrients in every sip of your Pineapple Spinach Smoothie!
