Avocado-Pineapple Smoothie

Mar. 17, 2018

In the spirit of St Patrick’s Day, we’ll be incorporating leafy greens into a smoothie. If you find many smoothies taste too sweet, this recipe is for you. It leans towards the savory side with avocado, fresh spinach and soy milk balanced with pineapple and banana.


  • 3 servings, about 24 ounces


  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 cup canned pineapple chunks, drained (reserve juice)
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 banana
  • ¾ cup soy milk, unsweetened
  • Honey, to taste


  1. Add ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and whipped. Thin with additional soy milk for pourable consistency. Taste; add 1-2 tsp of honey, if desired.
  2. Garnish with pineapple chunks and chia seeds.

Note: For best results, drink shortly after preparing. If left to stand, the color will begin to brown on the surface due to the avocado.
