This green smoothie recipe has just 3-ingredients. It's paleo, vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free — with no added sugar. And it tastes like a pina colada!
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. That makes this simple green smoothie recipe so perfect for beginners. It's the best green smoothie to start with.
The coconut milk gives this smoothie it's creamy texture. And the pineapple adds sweetness so you don't need to add any sugar. Using frozen pineapple keeps it extra cold like a frozen pina colada. Of course, you can always add ice if you want a more frozen smoothie.
This 3-ingredient green smoothie is paleo, gluten-free, and dairy-free — with no added sugar and a bunch of leafy greens. And it still tastes like a pina colada. A great way to start the new year!
