Serves 4 

Dietitian's Tip: 

This smoothie is packed with potassium, calcium, vitamin A and C and can be a great afternoon snack when you pair it with a serving of nuts or whole-grain crackers. Consider squeezing your own orange juice and substituting different fruits (especially for ones that are in season) to make this recipe your own. Try pears instead of bananas.  


1 cup orange juice
½ cup pineapple juice
½ cup plain or vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 banana, peeled and sliced
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
Crushed ice 


1. Combine all ingredients in a blender.

2. Puree until completely smooth.

3. Serve immediately.

4. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
