Our favorite island green smoothie features the tropical flavors of pineapple and banana combined with fresh baby spinach, almond milk and honey.
I am finally getting back into the green smoothie thing after a long hiatus. I started with my favorite peachy green smoothie, but when I saw Budget Gourmet Mom’s tropical green smoothie, I knew I had to try it.
I absolutely adore pineapple… and silly me, I never thought to throw it into a smoothie.
But throw it in I did…and holy cow was it good! I didn’t have fresh pineapple so I used frozen pineapple chunks courtesy of Costco. And I didn’t have apple juice (or any fruit juice for that matter), so I went with my favorite alternative: almond milk.
This island green smoothie, as I affectionately call it, is my most favorite ever.
Even Madison, who is super picky about her green smoothies, enjoyed it. (I had kind of hoped she wouldn’t because I would have totally polished off her glassful.)
