3-Ingredient Green Smoothie

3-Ingredient Green Smoothie

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!

    HI there – part of your Sits Tribe here! I’ did almost three solid weeks of daily green smoothies, but am having to take a break until I figure out a food allergy I’m having. Bummer because they really helped with my sugar cravings. I’ll give this one a try when I’m back!

    Hi just wanted to say I big thank you. I’ve been trying to start a Paleo Diet but was finding all the information out there a bit overwhelming. I just didn’t know where to begin. Your blog has been so inspiring and made a huge difference. Thank you for all the fab and easy recipe ideas as well as the clear and easy to follow lay out.

      Ann Marie, thank you so much for your kind words! When I first went paleo five years ago it was hard to find information and simple recipes. That’s one of the reasons I started the blog – I’m so glad it’s been helpful for you!
