- 1 avocado
- 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 (packed) cup spinach
- Put avocado flesh, pineapple chunks, coconut milk, and spinach into a blender; begin blending on low speed and increase to high as the ingredients combine and blend until smooth.
This recipe makes a very thick smoothie; add more coconut milk or water to thin if desired. You can add unsweetened coconut flakes, chia seeds, bee pollen, or honey to increase the flavors and heartiness of this smoothie. Try 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks and 1 cup frozen mango for a nice sweet, tropical flavor. Add a couple of spoonfuls of nut butter like cashew butter or almond butter for some added protein!

Great way to start my morning! I added some blueberries and chia seeds and this has become my go to breakfast!!!
Jen the Mighty says:
I love smoothies but can't stand bananas, which seem to be a smoothie staple. Enter the blessed avocado. Totally creamy with a mild and delicious taste, this is the perfect solution to the smoothie banana dilemma. Am definitely enjoying this smoothie for breakfast or just as a snack, and since I happen to have coconut chips on-hand, I threw a couple on top!

I am all about my morning Smoothie, it allows me to get my greens and antioxidants in the most efficient way possible. This recipe is very good, I love the combo of avocado, pineapple and spinach. I used Organic Coconut water instead of Coconut milk as anything more than a tablespoon of coconut milk does not sit well with me. It tasted really good, will definitely make it again.

This smoothie recipe taught me the very valuable trick that avocado makes smoothies thick and creamy! I never would have put avocado in a smoothie! This recipe is so simple and delicious. I also like adding coconut flakes to the blender because I like a bit of texture in my smoothies.
