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.

avocado pineapple smoothieYield:

  • 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.
