Smoothies are my favourite light breakfast, and as Summer hits I usually find myself relying on them more and more. But, this summer I'm living in a room with my boyfriend's parents whilst we save up for our own flat, which means no smoothie making for me. However, my nostalgia for my one true love (green smoothies of course), means that I've whipped this recipe up for you today. I've already shared some of my favourite smoothie recipes of all time with you, including my strawberry and basil smoothie and my antioxidant green smoothie.

My pineapple and grape green smoothie however is possibly the lowest-calorie smoothie I've ever shared, so it's fab if you're looking to drop a few pounds and want a healthy breakfast alternative that leaves you feeling full. As it's a green smoothie, dropping a little bit of vitamin-filled wheatgrass or spirulina in is really easy to do without altering the taste too much.

Ingredients:

1 inch thick slice of pineapple, or about 1 1/2 cups
Handful of grapes, or 1 cup
Large handful spinach, or 2 cups
3 romaine lettuce leaves
1 stalk celery
150g milk alternative (I use rice milk)

Method:
- Chop all of the solid ingredients up, apart from the grapes
- Put all of the ingredients in your blender and whizz for 2 minutes

  4. Saving this recipe! I've been looking for one to include romaine lettuce, it's so good for you! Can you taste the lettuce/spinach??

    1. Aww yay! Yes, I've heard some seriously amazing things about it. You can't taste the spinach at all, and the lettuce only a tiny bit
