My version takes less than 5 minutes to make & is super simple -- it only requires 4 affordable ingredients (5 if you count the ice cubes, which are optional).
I use (and am in love with) my Ninja blender. I've used numerous blenders throughout the years, and this one takes the cake. I received it as a Christmas gift 2 years ago, and I use it daily. It works just as good today as it did the first day I used it. For my smoothies, I use the individual cup with Sip & Seal lid, making it perfect for on-the-go.
My Favorite Tropical Green Smoothie Recipe:
- 1 cup chopped frozen pineapple, strawberry, mango, & peach
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt
*Target has great options for frozen mixed fruit bags, with pieces already chopped & no sugar added. This is the blend I used in the recipe above, but this one is also my favorite.
Place 3 ice cubes (optional), fruit, milk, spinach, & yogurt in a blender, and blend until creamy. You can add almond milk or fruit to thicken/thin the mixture. Serve immediately, or freeze to enjoy for later.
There are about a billion recipes for "green smoothie" online, but these core ingredients are my favorite. Don't be afraid to play around & make this smoothie your own. You could add flax seeds, chia seeds, or whatever else you wanted. Try coconut milk instead of almond, or a different leafy green, such as kale, in place of spinach.
I'd love to know, what's your favorite blend?
