This pineapple peach green smoothie is packed with good-for-you ingredients and good-for-your-taste-buds flavor. Frozen pineapple and peaches make it sweet while spinach and protein make it extra healthy!
Is it too soon to be thinking about swimsuit season? We've had such crazy weather this winter and I'm more than ready for springtime because I know summertime will quickly follow. I've done more than my fair share of unhealthy snacking this winter and it's time to bring things back into balance.
The great thing about green smoothies is they're not only good for your waistline but also good for your immune system. There are still some nasty bugs floating around out there and we could all use a boost to our immunity.
This pineapple peach green smoothie is a super delicious way to fortify your body's flu-fighting power in addition to giving you a bit of extra fiber and protein to curb those snack cravings.
I'm also a huge fan of throwing in protein powder whenever possible, which is pretty much always if you have both chocolate protein powder and vanilla protein powder from Purely Inspired. (It's one of the best organic, vegan-friendly, non-GMO, plant-based protein powders out there.)
I added a bit of honey and vanilla extract to my pineapple peach green smoothie because I have a pretty impressive sweet tooth, but feel free to leave those out. The smoothie is still super tasty!
Also, you could totally substitute coconut milk for the almond milk to give it a more tropical flavor. I'm totally going to try that next time I make a green smoothie! Looking for some other yummy green smoothie recipes? Check out this round up of 15 good-for-you green smoothies.
