Green Pineapple Smoothie

Why do some fruits and veggies turn invisible when blended into smoothies, like banana and pineapple, but leaves, turn the whole batch green? Because the deep dark green of kale acts like food coloring and turns the smoothie green. Give it a try!

  • 1 cup pineapple, diced (frozen, fresh or canned in 100% juice)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup kale or spinach
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or plain milk
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes (skip if using frozen fruit)

Serves: 2

Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your kitchen gear and ingredients and put them on a clean counter.
  1. Put all the ingredients in the blender. Put the top on tightly.
  2. Turn the blender to medium and blend until smooth and liquid enough to move freely in the blender jar, increasing the speed to medium-high if necessary, about 40 seconds. (You might have to stop the blender, remove the top, and stir the contents if they get stuck.)
  3. Serve right away or pour into ice pop molds for a cool treat later.
