Pineapple Green Smoothie
This pineapple green smoothie is a quick and easy way to get more protein into your diet. It's a delicious post workout meal with a tropical twist.
Servings: 1 smoothie
- 1 cup 1% milk I used ultra filtered to double the protein (14g instead of 8)
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 3/4 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
In a high speed blender, add the milk and spinach. Blend until smooth (this prevents pieces of spinach sticking around).
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
Nutritional info is based on the brand of protein powder. Every brand will change the information slightly.
Sweetening Your Smoothie
If you taste the smoothie and it's not as sweet as you prefer (it's a fruit smoothie, but not overpowering with sweetness) adjust it how you would like.
You can add:
- More pineapple (if you want it thicker, this is another option too)
- Monkfruit sweetener
- Maple syrup
