This is my kids' favorite smoothie! The main flavors of this smoothie are pineapple and vanilla but it is full of antioxidants from berries and spinach! Great way to get your greens.

Cook's Note:

For a less sweet smoothie you can add an extra cup or two of crushed ice.

Another less sweet option is to substitute plain fat-free yogurt plus 1/2 teaspoon vanilla in place of the vanilla fat-free yogurt.

I used frozen blueberries and raspberries and fresh pineapple so I cut back a bit on the ice. Trust me the kids will never know there's fresh spinach in this because all you really taste is the fruitiness with not one fruit dominating. We eat with our eyes and I can't say that I'm crazy about the brownish color but it does taste good and this breaks down great nutritionally. Thanks Laurie C. for sharing your recipe. Read More

I'm sorry but this recipe didn't work out well for us. We found it to be incredibly tart. No one really liked it much. I am not sure what went wrong because I followed the recipe but my only thought is maybe because the fruit is not really in season right now although the blueberries and pineapple seemed fine when eaten on their own.

Yummy! I didn't have blueberries but used the rest of the ingredients. Even my two year old had some. Read More
