Smoothie Love: Pineapple Spice Cake


I posted a while back about green smoothies & my favourite recipes. And since then I've discovered a few more that I love :) I occasionally post my smoothies on Instagram, and when Tiana from l'esthetique asked for the recipe for this one I realized I hadn't shared it and thought it was high time to do so!

This is truly one of my favourite smoothies. The best way to describe how it tastes is 'tropical Christmas' haha There's the pineapple & mango to make it tropical-y and the cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger combo make it Christmas-y :)

The original recipe (from Green Smoothie Revolution) called for 1/2 a pineapple but my blender couldn't hold that much with all the other ingredients. It also called for 1 whole mango, but I use frozen mango so I just do a rough cup. I use 1 or 2 bananas depending on how many bananas are in the house & need used up. And I use a packed cup of chard - I really can't taste it in the smoothie, but you could use spinach too (spinach is really tasteless in smoothies). The amount of ginger that I use varies (the original recipe calls for a 'small piece'), but it is quite strong so I try to not put too much in.

Do you think you would ever try a smoothie like this? Let me know if you try & what you think!!
