This pineapple smoothie is sure to give you a huge energy boost, making it a great breakfast option for on the go folks. From Refinery 29, The Sweetheart smoothie recipe also makes a great morning snack or post-workout refresher.

The pineapple smoothie not only contains the delicious tropical fruit, the non-dairy recipe also calls for ingredients such as coconut milk, extra virgin olive oil, ground flax seeds and hemp protein. This makes it perfect for people with dietary restrictions or who are lactose intolerant. The blended beverage provides a source of healthy fats from the flax while the hemp offers a vegan source of protein. The combination of coconut and pineapple also creates a fun, tropical, island-inspired flavor that is ideal to ring in warmer weather.
