I made up this green smoothie recipe a couple weeks ago and it’s becoming a favorite. Not too elaborate, tastes good, just right. The proportions are easy so I’m pretty much guaranteed a tasty result.
Pineapple-Banana-Spinach-Chia Green Smoothie
Half a pineapple – Cut off the rind, and cut into chunks.*
1 Tbsp chia seeds soaked in 2/3 cup water**
1 handful (5 medium) ice cubes
~1/2 cup cold water (in addition to what chia soaked in)
3 oz of fresh spinach (One big handful)
Put everything except the spinach into your blender. Begin blending. About half way thru, add the spinach. Finish blending and serve.
* If you’ve got a good blender, like a Vitamix, include the core of the pineapple since there’s nutrition in it.
** The way I do chia is add the chia seeds and water to a small jar, shake the jar, leave on the counter all day or overnight, shaking a couple times, then pop into the fridge to wait for the next time I make a smoothie. If you’re doing the chia then and there, soak for 10 or 15 minutes before adding to the blender.
