I’ll be the first to admit that I’d been avoiding green smoothies. While I love smoothies, and I love greens, actually drinking greens just seemed weird. So I decided to kick off the new year by experimenting with adding greens to my pina colada smoothie. The only requirement was it still had to taste like a pina colada. While I didn’t mind it being green, I really didn’t want to taste the greens.
What makes this smoothie so good is the strong fruit flavors of pineapple and coconut. The pina colada flavor masks the taste of the spinach. This 3-ingredient green smoothie is paleo, gluten-free, and dairy-free — with no added sugar and a full serving of spinach. And it still tastes like a pina colada. A great way to start the new year!
- 1 cup fresh baby spinach
- ¾ cup coconut milk
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
