Spinach is the star in this smoothie and it gives this drink a deep, rich green color and velvety texture. This smoothie is less sweet than a traditional fruit smoothie—the sweetness from the pineapple is balanced out by the spinach and cucumber—but it is very refreshing and makes for a great afternoon pick-me-up snack.
- 1 ½ cups water or coconut water
- 2 cups packed spinach
- 1 large cucumber, peeled and seeded
- 1 ½ cups frozen pineapple chunks
Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
