This smoothie is super-bright, refreshing, and filled with tropical flavors.


  • 1 heaping cup chopped fresh pineapple
  • ½ large very ripe banana, sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup packed fresh spinach (washed and chopped)
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint, just the leaves (about 10-12)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil
  • juice of ½ lime
  • ¾ cup natural coconut water
  • 12 tablespoon hemp seeds, optional
  • 23 ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon honey, optional


  1. Pile everything except the honey into the blender and puree on high for a full minute or two.
  2. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking. (The pineapples I have been eating lately are super-sweet and juicy, so honey hasn’t been necessary at all!)
  3. Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately.
