Pineapple Mojito Green Smoothie


Pineapple Mojito-4

A great way to introduce your friends to green smoothies is to have a party. Instead of cocktails, whip up a big pitcher of green smoothie. This has got to be one of our family favorites— juicy, sweet pineapple; refreshing mint and a squeeze of lime. The only thing missing is the beach.

If you’re not a fan of kale in your smoothies but want to be, this is a good one to start with. The pineapple and coconut water make it very sweet. The kale flavor ends up being very mild. Let me put it this way, normally my kids don’t like kale in their smoothies, but this one went down the hatch nice and easy with nary a word of, “I don’t like this! It’s too…green!”

Your friends and your body will thank you further on down the line. The recipe below will make 2 good-sized smoothies. For a crowd, make a double or triple batch. Trust me, your guests are going to keep coming back for more!

    I made one of these once. I used Maca to give it a nice boost 😉

      Hi Liz,

      Yum! We love the energy + nutrient boost we get from adding maca powder to our green smoothies!

    I have purchased smoothie books etc in an attempt to encourage my child to eat more greens, fiber, beneficial enzymes etc that supports our probiotic intake and avoids dairy (I’m a Chiropractor with a Masters degree in Nutrition and human performance with teaching experience in functional nutrition so I’m a bit passionate on this). My child has avoided most green smoothies and thought they were ‘too weird’. He continued to request this smoothie and it is a first! I’ve never left a comment on a site before but this thrilled me so much I wanted to share my experience with other parents who may be struggling as well. Thank you!!!

    I am trying to find smoothie recipes I can make ahead of time for “individual frozen smoothie packs”.. Have you ever tried that with this recipe?

    • SGS Rawkstar 1.18.2016 at 8:02 am #

      Hi Victoria,

      Looking to pre-blend and freeze our recipes! Go for it!! We suggest storing your pre-blended smoothies in an airtight freezer-safe container. When you’re ready to enjoy, simply thaw your green smoothie in the refrigerator the night before. Because none of our recipes have yucky additives or stabilizers, separation is completely natural, simply give you smoothie a quick shake before enjoying.

      We also love to prep our smoothies to make morning blending even easier. Check out our tips here…

      Cheers 🙂

    Hi!. I have taken up the 30days challenge. Sorry this might be a silly question, on your recipe it says 2 cups of kale. Do you compact the kale into the cups?. I normally just get 2 stalks or should i say 2 leave from stem. They are about 20 to 30cm each leave. Would that be enough? . I am think that i might not be putting enough green leaf for smoothies. Never as green as your pictures. But i do add a fair bit into my juice. Kale, Celery, Chia, Raw almond, an apple, carrot and blueberries minimum.

      Pardon my english. Leaf*

      Hi Kent,

      Thanks for reaching out! When measuring our leafy greens, we tightly pack them into a measuring cup. If you’re blendin’ outside of the US, 1 cup of leafy greens is equal to 30g.

      Hope this helps! 🙂

      • Kent 11.24.2015 at 5:22 pm #

        30g!. Perfect!. Yes i am located in Australia. Thanks for the help.

      • SGS Rawkstar 11.24.2015 at 5:50 pm #

        Perfect! Happy be could help! 🙂

    Hi! i do really interested to try this recipe. but can I use spinach instead of Kale? since I live in Indonesia so Kale it’s kinda hard to find. and I have dried mint leaves. can I use it to substitute fresh mint leaves? thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar 11.19.2015 at 11:10 am #

      Hi Fany,

      Of course! We love switching up our leafy greens! Use what’s available and local to your area! And just remember – because of their more intense concentrated flavor, dried herbs can be substituted for fresh herbs at a ratio of 1 to 3.

      Cheers 🙂

    This is a tasty smoothie. I was a little hesitant to try it. I love the crispness of the pineapple and lime juice together. I didn’t have mint, so I used Cilantro instead. I’m so excited for November 3rd and all of the tasty new recipes the book contains.

  10. Melissa 10.9.2015 at 4:07 pm #

    Do I have to use coconut water? I have almond milk and fat free milk and plain greek yogurt that I usually use in my smoothies.

    • SGS Rawkstar 10.9.2015 at 4:55 pm #

      Hi Melissa,

      You definitely don’t! I will admit, we love our recipes the way they are, but please don’t feel like you need to follow them to a T! They’re here to inspire you! Swap in another liquid base you enjoy more!

      Cheers 🙂

    Excellent! Frozen pineapple and a few ice cubes for a hot summer day! Healthy Mojito!

    • SGS Rawkstar 8.17.2015 at 9:50 am #

      Hi Lisa,

      Our thoughts exactly! This is the perfect green smoothie for a hot summer day!

      Cheers 🙂

    Hi, this one turned out so chunky and fibrous for me – a first with the smoothies from this site. Is it because of the fibrous pineapple – I have a regular Kitchen Aid blender, and while it works fine with the other smoothies I’ve tried, I think it met its match in this one. No matter how long I blended, the final mix never really got homogenized. I wonder if this one needs a banana?

    • SGS Rawkstar 6.18.2015 at 7:11 am #

      Hi Alina,

      Thanks for reaching out! Did you use fresh or frozen pineapple? Like you said, the fibrous pineapple can sometimes be tough on your blender, and using frozen pineapple is a great way to get around the pineapple’s texture! If you bought fresh, I love cutting up the pineapple, laying it out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper in the freezer, and then once it’s frozen, store the pineapple in an airtight container.

      Hope this helps!

    I used spinach instead of Kale, because Kale was dare. I love it, very very nice.
    Thank you for giving us the recipes.

    • SGS Rawkstar 4.20.2015 at 7:43 am #

      Hi Fions,

      Spinach is a great substitution for Kale! Happy blending!
