I wrote an entire best selling cookbook based around smoothies, and this is a take on my favorite one… the Pina Colada Green Smoothie!

I added some healthy fats, to keep you fuller longer. Plus with the add-ins you can now add some extra protein or diverse greens.

Ingredients in Vegan Green Smoothies

It is important to get frozen pineapple. It keeps the smoothie cold and thickens it up too. But if you have a fresh pineapple you can also just freeze chunks before making the smoothie, or simply add 1 cup of ice and use fresh pineapple.

Shopping List for Vegan Green Smoothies:

  • 2 cups baby spinach

How to Make a Vegan Smoothie Recipe

The key to making smoothies an everyday meal, is cleaning up after. I know this sounds weird, but if you let the ingredients sit in the blender, cleaning it will be a nightmare… and you won’t want to make one tomorrow!

So rinse out the blender as soon as you pour your smoothie. You don’t have to scrub it, just rinse it, I promise it makes all the difference!

These green vegan smoothies taste like a Pina colada, but they are full of good for you ingredients!
I have included a section on swaps and add-ins, plus a toppings guide… because smoothie bowls shouldn't get to have all the fun!
Special Tip: If you want to thin out your smoothie without adding more calories, just add water! It won't change the flavor and it will count towards your daily water goals.
