It’s easy to sneak some greens into your diet by including them in smoothies like this Pineapple Green Smoothie.
You’ll get a gorgeous color, and the smoothie will still taste like fruit. You can add greens to any of your regular smoothie recipes, but if you use dark ingredients, like blueberries, you may end up with a brown smoothie. This smoothie is a nice vibrant color since the fruit are all light colored. Plus I love pineapple!
It’s time for a Pineapple Green Smoothie!
Yields 1-2 servings
The recipe makes one very large smoothie, or two small smoothies, so feel free to share with a friend. It's great after a run or workout since pineapple is a natural anti-inflammatory.
