Banana Pineapple Green Drink

My normal morning routine always includes a green drink for breakfast. Sometimes that is enough to fill me up, other mornings I might add a little something on the side. One of my favorites is cinnamon raisin toast. This morning, I had a huge bunch of spinach from my farmer’s market trip, yesterday. I usually start with a couple of handfuls of greens, throw it in the high-speed blender and then toss in what ever fruit I have around.



This morning I didn’t have any fresh fruit so I looked in the freezer. I lucked out and found some pineapple and bananas I had frozen a couple of weeks back. I often will freeze produce rather than let it go bad. Even greens can be frozen this way and used later for green drinks. The frozen pineapple and bananas blended perfectly with the spinach and made a completely tasty, filling, refreshing green smoothie!

  • 1 cup frozen pineapple*

  1. Blend in high-speed blender until smooth.

* You can use fresh bananas and pineapple but I would add some ice.

    I just made this smoothie. Amazing! I used fresh banana and pineapple juice instead, along with frozen spinach and ice. Best idea ever.

    Is it bad to add plain yogurt to it to add some protein and body to it?

      You can add what ever you wish. I do not eat any dairy or animal products so I would never use it. Cheers!

    I have been having this every morning for a couple years now, but I use almond milk instead of water and drop in a raw egg for protein, otherwise it doesn’t get me all the way to lunch.

    I tried this recently! I did a cup of unsweetened almond milk (vanilla flavor if you’d like) and a little bit of honey. Though if the banana (not frozen) is ripe enough I omit the honey. Anyway, it’s super yummy!! and I’m not one for smoothies but this is super good and so easy to make! :)

    I just reread your into and didn’t realize that I could also freeze greens to use later on in smoothies….so I learned something else new today besides how to make this drink and enjoy it so much…..
