Peachy Pineapple Green Smoothie Recipe

Interestingly enough, I’ve learned it’s not easy to make a GREEN smoothie. That’s because when anything berry or cherry is involved, the darkness of those fruits can quickly overshadow the pretty, vibrant color of the greens. So for this new recipe, I set out to make a truly GREEN smoothie by golly, and I was lucky to have a fabulous little 10-year-old helper to put me on the right track.

As I mentioned the other day, both my older daughter and I were inspired by our recent 30-day Green Smoothie Challenge to try some new combinations and more importantly some new-to-us (in smoothies) ingredients. So inspired by some of our favorite recipes from the challenge, I’m excited to introduce to you this Peachy Pineapple Green Smoothie recipe made with some of our new favorite ingredients. Yum!

Today’s new recipe is also part of a surprise virtual baby shower for my friend and fellow food blogger, Catherine of Weelicious! A big congrats to her on her upcoming third bundle of joy! I’m so happy for her family and am thrilled to be able to take part in this special, colorful celebration that was coordinated in her honor today. See below for a list of all the other participants. :)

Peachy Pineapple Green Smoothie Recipe on 100 Days of #RealFood

Before we dive into the recipe, I want to make sure you know that frozen fruits and veggies are often just as nutritious and sometimes even more nutritious than fresh, depending on how far the “fresh” stuff has traveled. That’s because they’re picked and frozen right at the peak of freshness!

I personally love having frozen produce as an option when I don’t want to succumb to fruit flown in all the way from another continent, I can’t find it fresh altogether, or frankly, I’m just worried we won’t eat everything before it spoils! Frozen produce can also be a less expensive option, especially if you like to spring for organic. Thanks to my freezer stash of frozen organic produce, my house is always “smoothie ready” whenever the craving strikes! Enjoy :)

  1. Does it have a real peanuty flavor? Not sure if I think peanut butter sounds good with pineapples and peaches.

      Hi Randi. You can taste the peanut butter a bit. I had the same reservation before I had a fruit smoothie with peanut butter but they’ve become a favorite. I promise that it is a nice combo. ;)

    1. Also, water. I am a green smoothie lover thanks to the 30 day challenge as well. I make many of mine with water to keep the calories low.

    The Peachy Pineapple Green Smoothie is super YUM! I substituted frozen mango for the fruit because that’s what I had on hand. The flavor was very interesting. Peanut butter flavor came through with the banana, but also a salty sweetness that I really liked. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

    I LOVE the Simple Green Smoothie gals! I drink one every morning (as does my 3 year old son) thanks to us taking their challenge a year ago. I highly, highly recommend blending the greens and the liquid FIRST before putting in the remaining ingredients for a second blend. This way the greens get liquefied and there aren’t weird floaty green things in your (kids) smoothie. Cheers!

      1. When you buy the refurbished how do you know which designer model it is? (sorry for all the questions, new to this!)
