Green Banana Pineapple Smoothie

This is by far my favorite summer smoothie! It was actually the first smoothie combo that I have ever made. It’s a fun green color and tastes super refreshing. The green color comes both from spinach and wheatgrass. I love wheatgrass! It is the first superfood that I ever tried. It has a grassy taste that isn’t too strong so its an easy add to any smoothie.

It may be best to avoid wheatgrass if you are gluten-free.

Note: This recipe is labeled as vegan, but is topped with bee pollen (optional). If you are trying to follow a vegan diet, you may want to skip the bee pollen topping.

Sounds weird but smells and tastes soo good! 🍌✨
