Green Citrus Smoothie Recipe
Getting enough dark, leafy greens into your day often isn't easy, but luckily there are ways to sneak in an extra serving or two, like with this Green Citrus Smoothie! Blended and ready-to-drink in minutes, I can always count on this shake to power my body and mind through a day of busy work or running errands.
This tangy, fruity, and revitalizing smoothie is a perfectly-balanced meal or snack! Loaded with powerful antioxidants and dietary fiber from spinach, grapefruit, and pineapple, this drink can help to boost immunity and support overall health.

What You Need to Make this Smoothie
All you need for this smoothie is 310 Organic Unflavored, grapefruit, pineapple, spinach, unsweetened coconut milk, and unsweetened plain yogurt. If you want to add another serving of veggies to your shake while adding more volume, add half a cup of frozen riced cauliflower for extra thickness, fiber, and nutrition!
310 Organic Unflavored
The combination of grapefruit and pineapple is so perfectly fruity and tart that I didn’t want to mask the beautiful flavors with too many other ingredients. A scoop of 310 Organic Unflavored adds the plant-based proteins, nutrients, and thickness you want without altering the taste of your smoothie. I always add this versatile meal replacement shake powder into my smoothies because it keeps me satisfied for longer!

How to Make this Smoothie
The first step to making this smoothie is peeling and freezing your grapefruit. Grapefruit can be quite bitter if the pith and rind aren’t removed, so I recommend cutting the rind off with a knife to easily carve out grapefruit segments. You can also peel grapefruit by hand, but I find this process takes longer and I don’t always have time for it. Once you have your grapefruit segments, place them in your freezer to freeze overnight!
After you have your frozen grapefruit, you’re ready to make the smoothie! Add all your ingredients into a blender and blend until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency - making sure there are no chunks of fruit remaining. Serve your finished smoothie in a glass or shaker cup and enjoy!
