This is the recipe to reach for when your body is craving a super-healthy breakfast. Baby spinach and cucumber both blend up beautifully, giving the drink a gorgeous emerald hue, but zero vegetal vibes. Hemp seeds add protein and healthy fats, while the apple and pineapple contribute fresh flavor. No matter what smoothie you're making, be sure to add the liquid to the blender first to help ensure a smoother blend.


  • 1 cup unsweetened hemp milk or soy milk

  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach

  • 1 Persian (mini) cucumber, roughly chopped (1 cup)

  • 1 cup roughly chopped Granny Smith apple (from 1 apple)

  • 1 ½ cups frozen pineapple chunks

  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds

  • Pinch of kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar or syrup (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender, starting with hemp milk. Process until smooth, about 1 minute.
