Green Smoothie

  • Makes : 4 cups

  • Servings : 4

We think vegan breakfasts are best served smoothie-style, and this is a great starter smoothie. It's a perfect mix of sweet and healthy, with banana and pineapple for sweetness and hearty greens to give nutritional punch and vibrant color. Feel free to add other fruits and veggies and experiment.


  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup spinach or kale leaves
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • Handful of ice
  • 2 cups water, nondairy milk, or juice (depending on your desired consistency)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil, or 1 avocado, peeled and pitted (optional)


Step 1

Puree all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
