Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks frozen
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

Instructions

  • Place all the ingredients in a blender in the order of appearance.
  • Blend the ingredients in a high-speed blender for 2-3 minutes until you get a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Taste the smoothie, adding more almond milk if it is too thick or adding a sweetener of choice if it's not sweet enough for you.
  • Pour into a cup or mason jar. Add fresh fruit toppings for garnish, if desired. Enjoy cold immediately, or store in fridge for up to 24 hours.

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight mason jar. It will stay fresh for up to 24 hours. But ideally, it's best to consume immediately after making
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Instead of almond milk, you can use any other plant-based milk to keep this vegan, or use regular or 2% milk
  • Other leafy greens work well in place of spinach. Some popular ones are kale, collard greens or romaine lettuce.
  • To replace the pineapple, you can use one cup of any chopped fruit. To keep the bright green color, I recommend banana, mango, pear, kiwi or green apples.
Equipment: I make my smoothies in my Vitamix. It has a "smoothie" button so it does all the work for me until the ingredients are well blended.
Nutrition: Please note that the nutrition label provided is an estimate based on an online nutrition calculator. It will vary based on the specific ingredients you use.  This information should not be considered a substitute for a professional nutritionist’s advice. The nutrition value is for two serving without any fruit toppings
