Blood Orange Pineapple Spinach Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

We had several blood oranges in our CSA Box this week. I was excited to try them and see how the flavor might be different from regular navel oranges. When I opened the box and saw them next to the spinach, I decided right then to make smoothies for an afternoon snack.

The blood oranges were more tart than regular oranges. So, I added an extra banana and some frozen pineapple as well. We all enjoyed these smoothies. If you are making this with regular orange juice, a single banana would probably be all that you need.

    I just purchased a blood orange yesterday for the first time, interested to try it out. My husband and I both thought it had a grapefruit taste to it. I don't know what I was thinking, for some reason I thought they'd be sweet 🙂

    You always get me with your Smoothies Mary. I look and think, "Wow,that's really green!" and then I get a little scared. BUT I look at your enticing list of ingredients and feel compelled to try it! P.S. Thanks for the email advice for my cauliflower appetizer!

    Sounds interesting! And again, I just LOVE the color & the addition of spinach sounds great! But I don't think so my sons like the color! They just got freaked out every time they see green color drinks! I guess I have to try harder to convince them.

      Absolutely. Although, they think it's so funny to put carrot tops into smoothies, they were bummed we didn't have more of them to add to this one.

      I usually peel a bunch of bananas and then freeze them all together in a gallon size ziploc bag. That way, I can remove however many I need at a time. Good luck!
