Island Green Smoothie Recipe

If you are looking for a simple yet refreshing smoothie recipe that you won’t feel guilty drinking often, my Island Green Smoothie Recipe is definitely for you!

This lovely green-colored drink made with fresh greens and tropical fruits has a natural sweetness to it that you and your family will surely enjoy! 

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • It’s easy to prepare at home. All you need is a blender, dark leafy greens, and a blend of fresh fruit and frozen fruit (it can also be a fruit of your choice). Making this healthy green smoothie is a breeze! 
  • It’s loaded with nutritious ingredients. This tropical smoothie recipe is the perfect way to sneak some veggies and fruit into your family’s diet. It’s a fantastic breakfast drink to help you start your day right! 
  • It’s made from natural ingredients high in fiber, making it a good detox drink.
  • It has no complicated, hard-to-get ingredients from the grocery store. Most of them may already be in your pantry!  

Ingredients for Island Green Smoothie Recipe

  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1 cup pineapple, frozen
  • 1 cup mango, frozen
  • 1 T flax seeds (optional)

Ingredients Notes

  • Spinach: You can use either frozen or fresh spinach for this recipe since both forms are powerhouse sources of vitamins, and minerals, particularly vitamin C and vitamin K. Also, regular spinach will do if baby spinach isn’t available.
  • Banana: Use a very ripe banana to infuse your smoothie with enough sweetness.  
  • Pineapple: To give your smoothie a refreshing taste, use fresh pineapple as much as possible. However, canned pineapple will do if that is what you have on hand. Freezing them the night before and using them in the recipe will also make adding ice cubes unnecessary!
  • Mango: As with the pineapples, make sure to freeze your fresh mangoes overnight. That way, your smoothie will end up creamy and thick when you add the frozen ripe mango to the mix!
  • Flax seeds(Optional): To boost the nutrient content of your smoothie even more, adding some flax seeds to the drink should do the trick. These little guys are a great way to add more dietary fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids!

How to Make An Amazing Island Green Smoothie Recipe

Step 1: Pour cold water into your high speed blender.

Step 2: Add the spinach, banana, frozen pineapple, and frozen mango into the blender. If desired, you can also add the flax seeds to the mix.

Step 3: Put the blender’s cover on and blend the ingredients on high. Keep blending until you reach your desired consistency. 

Step 4: Pour the smoothie into glasses, serve, and enjoy!

Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • If the smoothie turns out too thick for your taste, add more water to thin it out.
  • Conversely, if you find your smoothie too watery or the taste of the greens too overpowering, then you can add more frozen fruits to balance the drink.
  • Using a high-speed blender will help give you a delicious smoothie with the exact consistency you prefer – especially if you like yours to have a very smooth and creamy texture.

What to Serve with Island Green Smoothie

While good to drink on its own, you can serve this tropical Island Green Smoothie with the following meals:

Recipe Variations

  • Instead of using cold water, use coconut water or coconut milk to give your healthy smoothie an even more robust tropical flavor. 
  • If you like your smoothie sweeter or making the drink more palatable for kids, you can add some all-natural, raw honey, fruit juice, or maple syrup to your tropical green smoothie.
  • If you feel like your smoothie needs a little acid kick, you can add a splash of lime, lemon, or orange juice to it. 
  • Want to add extra nutrition to this smoothie? Add chia seeds, too!

Storage Tips

If you can’t finish your drink, don’t be so quick as to throw the leftover smoothies away! Simply store the remainder in mason jars or other airtight containers, and then pop them in the fridge. 

When you’re ready to enjoy the smoothie again, give your jar a little shake and drink up!

Planning on storing the smoothie for a while longer? Pour the mix into ice cube trays or inside zip lock bags, then store them in the freezer. Then, thaw the smoothie out completely or blend it with more fruits, water, or juice before drinking.
