pineapple, spinach & mint smoothie

Wow, the weather in London has been so hot over the last few days! It feels like we’re finally experiencing a real summer. It’s been so lovely here, and I’ve spent lots of time sat out in the sunshine in the local park near where I live. It’s been the perfect time to just relax and enjoy the season! And, when it’s hot outside, I really love to eat lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and drink lots of homemade smoothies!

My latest smoothie creation was a pineapple, spinach and mint flavour. It has a really delicious, refreshing taste that’s nice and tropical – perfect for celebrating the season. To make the smoothie, I mixed these ingredients with my favourite Alpro Coconut Milk, as it’s really light and has a great coconut flavour. I also added in some spirulina, as it naturally enhanced the green colour of the drink.

It’s such a simple smoothie to make, but it tastes amazing and is surprisingly filling. I definitely think its my new favourite summer drink! I hope you enjoy the recipe!
