Pineapple Green Smoothie (DF)
This Pineapple Green Smoothie is a refreshing and healthy smoothie that tastes amazing, packed full of vitamins and minerals.
Veggies!!! We all NEED to eat them daily to keep our bodies properly nourished so we can be healthy and strong. Remember all the muscles Popeye had? What was he slamming during every episode? SPINACH! As a child I disliked veggies so much, I pretty much gagged every time I consumed them. I wish my mom had a Vitamix to disguise the taste. I really can’t remember any vegetable I enjoyed, but now I’m really enjoying certain vegetables and loving this Pineapple Green Smoothie. It is a such a blessing my kids love to eat veggies so much that I don’t have to hide them in smoothies.
Benefits of Spinach:
Spinach does a body good and in this refreshing green smoothie it is packed with the super food, Spinach. Spinach is a nutrient-rich food. In every cup of spinach there is vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K1, Folic Acid, Iron, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium and Vitamins B6, B9 and E. It also contains amino acids, is known to boost your immune system and fight cancer.
Benefits of Pineapple:
Now let’s talk about the sweet pineapple in this smoothie. The mouth-watering pineapple contains many nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, including potassium, copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, beta-carotene, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, bromelain, and fiber! Pineapple is known to boost immunity, may reduce inflammation, may help prevent cancer, arthritis, and heart disease.
How could you not want to drink one of these every day after knowing the benefits of spinach and pineapple? This smoothie is not only packed with a load of health goodness, it is quite delicious! I must be honest I don’t “love” many vegetables so I must find a way to disguise them. In this smoothie, I did a wonderful job disguising it because it is packed with 2 cups of spinach (I can’t taste it), 1 cup of frozen pineapple, a juice from one lemon and water. That is it! It is a perfectly delicious and refreshing smoothie. My kids and I enjoy this smoothie almost every day. The sweet pineapple and the lemon juice cover up the spinach taste.
