About This Recipe
This Tropical Green Goddess Smoothie is a green smoothie that is super healthy and is loaded with fresh fruits and veggies.
It comes together in just 5 minutes and can be served for a light breakfast or snack. You can also drink it as your pre or post-workout snack with the addition of preferred protein powder or hemp powder.
This creamy smoothie has no refined sugar and no dairy and if you are concerned about the taste, let me confirm that it doesn’t taste like you are drinking veggies. It has a natural sweetness from apples, bananas, and pineapples that perfectly balances the slightly bitter and veggie-like taste of spinach and avocado.
This green smoothie is vegan, gluten-free, and keto-friendly too.
Ingredients & Variations
Fruits – This smoothie is loaded with fruits such as bananas, pineapple, and apples. I used red apples but you can use green apples too.
Bananas and pineapples are frozen ahead of time to give a thick and creamy texture. The combination of these three fruits adds that perfect amount of sweetness and tartness to the smoothie.
You can also add other fruits like mango, pear, peach, strawberries, etc to this smoothie.
Veggies – I add spinach, avocado, and celery to this green goddess smoothie recipe. They are a powerhouse of nutrients and make this smoothie super healthy and detoxifying. Try to use baby spinach as it is less bitter than the regular one. You can use fresh or frozen spinach.
Avocado gives a lovely creamy and rich texture to the smoothie and is a healthy fat to include in your diet. Make sure it is perfectly ripe otherwise, the smoothie will taste bitter.
You can also add carrots, kale, and ginger to this detox smoothie.
Almond Milk – Add in some unsweetened almond milk or any other plant-based milk like coconut milk, soy milk, etc to thin down the smoothie. If you are not a vegan, then dairy milk will also work fine.
You can also replace the milk with coconut water, apple juice, plain water, orange juice, or kefir.
Others – I also add some ground turmeric, chia seeds, and lime juice to make this smoothie extra nutritious.
If you feel the need for sweetener in your smoothie, then a little amount of honey (not vegan), maple syrup, or peanut butter will do the magic.
You can also add flax seeds, hemp seeds, almond butter, and protein powder to this green drink.
How To Make Green Goddess Smoothie
To a high speed blender, add 2 and ½ cups of chilled almond milk, 1 red apple (peeled, cored, and chopped), 1 large frozen banana, 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks, ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder, ½ stalk of celery (chopped), 1 and ½ cup (packed) baby spinach, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 avocado, and 1 tablespoon lime juice and blend until all ingredients are well combined.
If necessary, add in more almond milk to thin the smoothie. Pour in glasses and serve.
Just like any other smoothie, this tropical green smoothie tastes the best when served fresh! Leftovers can be stored in a mason jar or a covered glass jar for about a day in the refrigerator.
