Pineapple Mojito Green Smoothie


Pineapple Mojito Smoothie Recipe | Simple Green Smoothies

Our pineapple mojito smoothie is a great way to introduce your friends to green smoothies!

It’s refreshing served poolside on a hot summer day. Instead of cocktails, whip up a big pitcher of this green smoothie and watch as the compliments roll in.  You can even have a bottle of rum on the side as an option to upgrade to an adult drink.

No matter where ya serve it, this has got to be one of our family favorites— juicy, sweet pineapple; refreshing mint and a squeeze of lime. It’s the perfect summer drink to cool down, hydrate yourself and feel amazing!

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’ve been a “Rawkstar” since I got hooked during July’s 30 day challenge. I’ve tried them all and this one is one of the best! So refreshing! Perfect for the afternoon smoothie or for an evening treat. Served up cold in my insulated Tervis Tumbler and I’m in smoothie heaven!!

    Made this yesterday as my first green smoothie! I froze the pineapple so it was like a beautiful yummy slushie! Soooooo good! I used baby kale also and did it in my food processor! It worked really well, still had little pieces but I was happy with the consistency. I just got ingredients for 2 smoothies, so also the mango ginger immune support. Can’t wait to try that one today!

    What could you put in this to make it more filling as a breakfast substitute?

  12. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 29th, 2014 at 8:13 am

    Hey Cassie! 🙂

    If you drink green smoothies as meal replacements, make sure to add a protein boost (plant-based protein powder, nut milk, nut butter), or snack on some nuts or a hard-boiled egg 30-60 minutes after you drink your green smoothie.

    Hello! to eat a smoothie for breakfast I add a couple of spoons of hemp hearts or soy or almond milk or even soft tofu for a full meal replacement.

  14. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    November 30th, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    Hey Melanie.

    Thanks for the comment. We recommend staying away from highly-processed soy products which can interfere with nutrient absorption and leach nutrients from your body. Small amounts of organic, non-GMO soy are fine.

    September 30th, 2014 at 9:11 pm

    To make my smoothie a meal replacement I add a half cup of oatmeal. One morning I didn’t have any kale or spinach..so I thinking what am I going to use– frozen broccoli. Smoothies are addicting!!!

    Alisa,

    Is your oatmeal cooked?

  18. Alaina

    October 21st, 2014 at 10:57 am

    Hi! So I just made this, but with spinach and no other ingredients were frozen except for the spinach leaves. It turned out to be more of a juice than a smoothie, and most of the drink is like fuzzy at the top instead of it just being juice. Did I do something wrong? It also tastes a bit bitter…is it because of the spinach??

  19. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    October 22nd, 2014 at 5:03 am

    Hi Alaina.

    Sometimes lime juice can be bitter. Next time I would suggest using frozen pineapple and less lime juice. Hope that helps. 🙂

  20. Vanessa

    November 4th, 2014 at 7:38 am

    Hello. Is there a substitute that can be used in place if the coconut water?

  21. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    November 4th, 2014 at 8:31 am

    Hey Vanessa.

    We love all sorts of liquids, have you tried almond milk or coconut milk?

    https://simplegreensmoothies.com/liquid-base

  22. Brooke

    November 22nd, 2014 at 9:26 pm

    Was just wondering if you could use spinach instead of kale as I don’t have any kale and really want to try this soon

  23. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    November 23rd, 2014 at 6:44 pm

    Totally Brooke. All of our leafy greens are interchangeable. 🙂 https://simplegreensmoothies.com/rotate-your-greens

  24. Patti

    December 1st, 2014 at 8:03 am

    I just bought a blendtec yesterday at Costco and made my first green smoothie…I LOVE it! I was wondering if anyone has ever used Arugula? Just curious. I love spinach, kale and swiss chard but I live in the south so there are always lots of greens like mustard and collard greens. I grew up in the northeast so I never had these. Any feedback on these?

  25. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    December 1st, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    Hey Patti.

    Arugula is very strong and spicy. I would slowly add it to your green smoothies.

    Cheers. 🙂

  26. Sue Hunt

    December 7th, 2014 at 5:25 am

    Arugula was mentioned in an early reply. I wouldn’t use it with pineapple, but it does go really well with mango & coconut water.

  27. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    December 8th, 2014 at 9:46 am

    Thanks, Sue.

  28. MJ

    December 9th, 2014 at 10:58 am

    My boyfriend and I have been replicating 2 meals a day with your smoothies and this one is BY FAR my favorite! I use all of the “meat” of the lime, though- not just the juice. I also like using a little less fruit and a bit more veggies just to keep carbs/sugar down.

  29. MJ

    December 9th, 2014 at 10:58 am

    we have been replacing* 🙂 oops

  30. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    December 9th, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    YAY! So glad you enjoyed it MJ!

  31. Ali

    January 1st, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    I’m allergic to pineapple. What is a good alternative to it? I would love to try this one!

  32. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    January 2nd, 2015 at 9:26 am

    Hey Ali.

    Try mango, peaches, pears, oranges, or a banana. 🙂

  33. Stacie

    January 2nd, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    This was a great smoothie. I used organic shredded coconut flakes in a pinch and it turned out great.

  34. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    January 2nd, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    Sounds wonderful! Did you save us any? Hope so!

  35. Keshia

    I’m new to green smoothies and i just made this one today. All I can say is YUM. I can’t wait to try another recipe.

  36. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    February 9th, 2015 at 2:14 pm

    YAY! Welcome + thanks for blending with us!

  37. Alex

    February 2nd, 2015 at 10:07 am

    Just wondering with Kale do you remove the leafy part from the stock? and is it easier to chop it up to measure the correct amounts?

  38. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    February 9th, 2015 at 2:14 pm

    Hey Alex.

    We tend to leave most of the stock for blending, but feel free to groom any large stock off before measuring and blending.

    Hi. I have been making smoothies for a full week now and I lost 2 pounds! I love it! I bought too much mint and dried the remainder. Can I use the dried mint in recipes, or does it have less nutrients than the fresh?

  40. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    February 9th, 2015 at 2:12 pm

    Hey Joan.

    Thanks for the comment. We would prefer using fresh, but if dried is what you have on hand, feel free to try it. Hopefully you blender can get it nice and smoothie without dried chunks.

  41. misty

    July 11th, 2015 at 12:31 pm

    Hey Joan! You should consider growing your own mint. It’s so easy to grow. I keep it in a large pot on my patio. It grows like crazy with hardly any attention. So now i have out fresh, organic mint whenever needed. I never run out, it makes every smoothie better, and it seems like it keeps bugs away! Give it a try!

  42. SGS Rawkstar

    July 13th, 2015 at 9:49 pm

    Hi Misty,

    Great suggestion! I just planted some outside of my kitchen window, it’s perfect for adding mint to my smoothies, teas, or pretty much anything (I can’t get enough mint during these summer months!).

    Cheers!

    Can I use coconut milk instead of water? Thanks

    Hi does this give a smooth or ‘fiber’ drink and what blender/juicer do I need? A nutribullet? Thanks

  46. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    February 18th, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    Hi Tim.

    Thanks for reaching out. Green Smoothies have tons of fiber in them. You will need a blender, like a Nutribullet, Vitamix or Blendtec. 🙂
