Minty Pineapple Green Smoothie
An energizing morning drink packed with so many good-for-you ingredients and anti-inflammatory compounds.
Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Servings: 2 min
- 2 cups kale
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut water
- 1 banana chunks
- 2.5 cups pineapple chunks
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves or to taste
- 1 lime or lemon peeled (use less if using lemon, ½ lime = 1 tbsp)
- 1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
Blend kale, mint, and coconut water until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again. If the smoothie is too thick for you, add more liquid base. If you have a high-speed blender, you can throw in everything at once.
Optional: Add superfoods/toppings - such as goji berries, chia seeds, or raw cacao nibs - if you like.
Use one or more frozen fruits to chill the smoothie.
