This Superfood Smoothie is packed with noteworthy superfoods! While I usually love to throw in a couple superfoods in all my smoothie recipes, this one packs in five superfoods! And don’t worry, superfood and nutritious here are not in exchange for flavor!
- Baby spinach: Spinach is a great source of vitamin A, C and K as well as iron and magnesium.
- Pineapple: High in antioxidants and can help boost immunity. Pineapple is full of vitamins and minerals.
- Kefir: A great source of probiotics, calcium and protein.
- Ginger: Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory and can help ease digestion.
- Turmeric: Turmeric is another great anti-inflammatory and I love the earthy flavor it adds to the smoothie.
RECIPE VIDEO TUTORIAL
How to make this superfood smoothie
You can whip up this superfood smoothie in just a minute. There’s no prep required as long as you have the pineapple already frozen. You can chop it and freeze it or just buy it already frozen.
Throw it all in a blender and blend until the it’s smooth and creamy. It will start out looking chunky an separated, but will soon turn into a homogenous light green color,
Tips to make this healthy smoothie
- Use frozen pineapple.This gives the smoothie an extra smooth and creamy consistency and you won’t need to use ice cubes, which can thin the drink.
- If you don’t have kefir, you can use yogurt instead. I like to use Greek yogurt which is high in protein. You may need to add some liquid thought since kefir is thinner than Greek yogurt.
- Use a high speed blender. If you don’t have a high speed blender, I recommend stirring it every once in a while with a long spoon and blending for an extra 1 minute.
Frequently Asked Questions
Smoothies are best drunk as soon as they are made. Once the ingredients are blended they start to oxidize and lose their nutrients. If you can’t drink it straight away, keep it covered in the fridge and drink within 24 hours.
This smoothie comes in at around 250 calories and has good amounts of fiber, carbs and protein. It’s a great breakfast option when you are short time.

Hot tip! If you’d like to pre-make your smoothies, you can freeze them in a large ice cube tray! (After the ingredients have already been blended together) — Then, whenever you’d like to have one, you just throw the cubes back into the blender!
Love that idea! Thank you for sharing!
Hi Yumna, I am not a fan of yogurt, what would be a good substitute for it? Would something like flavoured Oikos work?
Yes! If you don’t have kefir, you can use Oikos yogurt instead. I like to use Greek yogurt which is high in protein. You may need to add some liquid thought since kefir is thinner than Greek yogurt.
So good! Super easy to make and very refreshing, especially on a hot day!
So glad to hear it! Thank you!
