Banana Pineapple Green Drink
My normal morning routine always includes a green drink for breakfast. Sometimes that is enough to fill me up, other mornings I might add a little something on the side. One of my favorites is cinnamon raisin toast. This morning, I had a huge bunch of spinach from my farmer’s market trip, yesterday. I usually start with a couple of handfuls of greens, throw it in the high-speed blender and then toss in what ever fruit I have around.
This morning I didn’t have any fresh fruit so I looked in the freezer. I lucked out and found some pineapple and bananas I had frozen a couple of weeks back. I often will freeze produce rather than let it go bad. Even greens can be frozen this way and used later for green drinks. The frozen pineapple and bananas blended perfectly with the spinach and made a completely tasty, filling, refreshing green smoothie!
- 1 cup frozen banana*
- 1 cup frozen pineapple*
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 cup water
- Blend in high-speed blender until smooth.
* You can use fresh bananas and pineapple but I would add some ice.

I do up to a 40 oz. green smoothie every morning – two bananas, a large orange, and black or red grapes on Mondays or Tuedsays, Pineapple on the other day, mango with orange and berries on another day and then back to my Monday one on Thursdays. I rotate between kale, spinach, chard and romaine.
