If you love the combination of pineapple and coconut (hello Pina Coladas!), you’re going to love this gut-friendly & hormone-healthy Pineapple Coconut Green Smoothie. It’s thick, creamy, and delicious – and it will keep you full for hours.
Does the thought of adding avocado or spinach to your smoothies make you cringe? Trust me; I get it! I thought these ingredients would make my smoothies taste awful, but to my surprise, you can’t taste them at all! The coconut milk, pineapple, and protein powder mask the taste of spinach. Give them a try; I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Pineapple Coconut Green Smoothie
This creamy & delicious smoothie is packed with nutrients to boost your energy and keep you full in between meals.
- 1/2 cup unsweetened full-fat coconut milk
- 1/2 cup filtered water

Use organic ingredients when possible. Primal Kitchen's Collagen Fuel Vanilla Coconut is my go-to protein powder for this recipe. Truvani’s Vanilla Plant-Based Protein Powder also tastes great! Note: If you're using a different protein powder - check the serving size. One scoop may be just fine!
- Unsweetened nut milk of choice for coconut milk.
- 2 tablespoons hemp seeds + 2 tablespoons chia seeds + 1 teaspoon pure vanilla bean powder (optional) for vanilla collagen protein powder.
- 1 tablespoon cashew butter for avocado.
- Any organic leafy greens for baby spinach.
