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!

    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?

  4. 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?

  6. 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.

    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!

    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!).

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

  12. 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. 🙂

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

    Hi Fions,

    Spinach is a great substitution for Kale! Happy blending!

    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?

  24. SGS Rawkstar

    June 18th, 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!

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

    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.

    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 🙂

    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.

  30. SGS Rawkstar

    Hi Meaninc,

    Way to blend adventurously! Using cilantro in place of mint in this recipe is a great + tasty idea! Check out our favorite herbs to blend with here…

    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!

  32. SGS Rawkstar

    November 19th, 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 🙂
