"Hala kahiki is the Hawaiian word for pineapple. This is a seven-ingredient smoothie that is rich in vitamin C and other nutrients. Spinach gives it a beautiful green color yet it tastes tropically sweet. Great for breakfast or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Can adjust ice or water to achieve desired thickness of smoothie. I prefer mine not very thick."

I absolutely love this green smoothie. If you are new to green smoothies, this is definitely the one to try. It makes a nice sweet, yet slightly creamy fruit juice. I made it quite a few times, before it was even published trying to drink more green smoothies. It is still my favorite. Only change I make is I use a frozen orange. I also don't have an ice crusher and typically use about 8 ice cubes to equal 1 cup. I prefer the green grapes to keep the pretty green color and I have never tried it with the (optional) flax. Canned unsweetened pineapple in juice works great too, believe that is what I typically use as I have it in the house year round. I make 1/2 recipe and get 2 servings. Glad, this was published.
Made exactly as recipe stated, except I left out the flax. Very good, my toddler even drank it and he doesn't like any green vegetable. I might try slightly less spinach next time (maybe 1 1/2 c) to make it a little more fruity. Also want to note that this recipe makes a full blender worth of smoothie. Overall a great lower sugar smoothie option, definitely going in my recipe box!
