Pineapple Spinach Yogurt Protein Smoothie.



Sneaking vegetables into your kids has never been so easy!  I say this over and over again but your kids will not detect the spinach as the other flavors over-power it and make it virtually undetectable.  Plus, if you are trying to add more leafy greens to your diet, this is yet another fun way to do it.


1 medium sized pineapple, outer skin removed and cored, cut into chunks
1 apple, skin on but cored
1 large handful of baby spinach leaves, washed (I used organic)  – you can sub out kale for this to removing the hard stems and just use the leaves
1 scoop of whey protein powder, I used Cabot’s protein powder
1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (I used Chobani vanilla)
12 ice cubes
1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk (you can use whatever milk or juice you have on hand)


Place all of the ingredients into your Vitamix or blender and blend until creamy smooth.  Pour into glasses and enjoy!  This made 4 servings for me.  Adjust the milk amount to your desired consistency. Some people prefer thick while others like it a bit more like juice.

  1. Sounds delicious! Thanks for the recipe. Gonna take a look at tha green oatmeal smoothie also. I hadn’t thought of putting oatmeal in a smoothie until just recently. I’m getting a little bored with the straight oatmeal in the a.m!

  2. I MUST try this with my kids. I’m not sure why I keep waiting… but I’m betting the apple + pineapple will be the right combo for my little guys :)
