Avocado Smoothie


  • 1/2 cup cubed frozen pineapple

  • 2 cups packed fresh spinach, or 1 cup frozen spinach

  • 1 ripe avocado

  • 1 frozen banana

  • 3/4 cup light coconut milk, canned or from a carton

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus 1/2 teaspoon zest

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

  • pinch of salt

  • 8 ice cubes

  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder*, optional


  1. Combine the pineapple, spinach, avocado, banana, coconut milk, lime juice, maple syrup, salt, ice, and protein powder, if using, in a blender. Blend until creamy.

  2. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, add more maple syrup. If the consistency is too thick, add more coconut milk, and blend again.
