You will need:

  • 1 cup (1 inch slice) pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup coconut milk (low fat)
  • 1 hand full / 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 2 T chia seeds

I love to include veggies in my smoothies, especially spinach. It is easy to eat broccoli or other hard vegetables with some dip during the day as a snack. Spinach, on the other hand, is a little harder to include in a daily diet so I try to drink a green smoothie everyday.

To make a green smoothie taste good you simply have to pick a citrus fruit or add more fruit than vegetables. I like to use pineapple or oranges with my green smoothies. You won’t taste the spinach or broccoli. If you do, add more of the fruit and if the smoothie turns out too thick add more coconut milk or water. I also use the low fat (boxed) coconut milk, not the canned one. You could probably also use coconut water.

Nutrition of the Pineapple Spinach Broccoli Smoothie

I like to use cronometer.com to track my nutrition and my Pineapple Spinach Broccoli Smoothie contains 260 calories, 38g carbs, 11g fat, 8g protein, and is very high in important vitamins and minerals (see picture below).

You always want to achieve a ratio of 4:1 or better on omega 6:3. Omega 3 fatty acids are anti inflammatory and if you consume too much omega 6 and not enough omega 3 you could experience inflammation in your body. The typical American diet contains too much omega 6 from cheap oils that is hidden in processed foods or fast food. This smoothie will help heal and nurture your body!
