My Favorite Green Smoothie

I mentioned this in a previous blog post, but I am totally obsessed with this pineapple pear green smoothie.

I used to always think that smoothies HAD to have protein in them, because I when I drank them it would always be for meal replacement. However, I’m really, really loving just drinking these green smoothies as a snack or as a side with my breakfast or lunch. Vegetables are not exactly my favorite thing, so I love that green smoothies are packed full of nutrients and still taste like a treat.

Here’s what goes into this smoothie you see pictured:

  • 5 or 6 ice cubes
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1 pear (sliced with the core removed)
  • large handful of fresh spinach/kale (your preference)
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice

Any recommendations for other green smoothie recipes? I’m thinking I need to expand my horizons, considering this is pretty much the only one I’ve been drinking for the last year!

Hello!! I was too lazy to write a post tonight so I did a video update for you guys. Enjoy!

Here’s the smoothie recipe I was talking about. I got it from Sweet Tooth Sweet Life and Fannetastic Food. This is how I make it:

Pear and Pineapple Green Smoothie

  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 pear (sliced and cored)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup  of pineapple
  • 1 large handful of spinach
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice

Just throw it all in the blender and then drink up! Let me know if any of you try it, or have other green smoothie recipe recommendations! I’d love  some ideas.
