Pineapple Orange Banana Spinach Smoothie

Pineapple Orange Banana Spinach Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Light enough to be enjoyed all summer long, this was a refreshing citrus flavored smoothie balanced with the tart sweetness of the pineapple and the mild greens for extra health benefits. My whole family loved the last smoothie I posted so much; I decided to add some spinach and make almost the same one again this morning.

With your eyes closed, you might not be able to tell one drink from the other. The citrus in the smoothie hides the spinach flavor very well. I'm sharing this version today, to challenge you once again to try a green smoothie if you still haven't done that. They really are delicious!

  1. I've been making spinach and banana smoothies for months now...I really need to switch it up and add some other fruits too! This recipe looks perfect for the summer...definitely going to give it a try

  2. I welcome this smoothie anytime here in Malaysia. It's been super hot these days, bathing in one's sweat!

  3. I would like to pre-order my smoothie recipe book before you run out! The ice cube idea is terrific. I would love to spend one day in the kitchen with you :) Have a lovely week.

  4. What a colorful smoothie! Sounds delightful with the coconut water and pineapple.
