Notes

*Oat Milk: this is a great non-dairy milk substitute, but it is not low carb and increases the overall carbs in this recipe if you're trying to balance blood sugar.
*Low carb option: omit the pineapple (14g carbs) to bring the net carbs to 14.8g in the entire smoothie. You could add in a keto-friendly sweetener if desired.
*Prep in advance: add all of the spinach, banana and pineapple to a bag and store in the freezer until you're ready to use. Add the contents to a blender with the milk and avocado and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. Add more milk a couple tablespoons at a time if it's too thick.
