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.
- 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.
