Tropical Green Smoothie – a delicious, easy way to consume those healthy greens!
Drink Your Greens
We all know that leafy greens are super healthy for us. I love starting my day with a green smoothie. It really sets the day off on the right foot. Leafy greens, specifically kale, contain vitamins: K, A, C, E and several B’s, plus calcium, fiber, potassium, iron, magnesium, folate, and even protein and healthy omega-3 fats! Greens are not to be ignored! But a lot of you out there don’t like to eat them raw and don’t really know how to cook them. No matter – let’s drink those greens instead! In this dairy free Tropical Green Smoothie, you won’t taste fibrous bitter greens, but you will reap the health benefits, while sipping on this sweet tropical deliciousness! When you start the day doing something healthy, you are likely to continue that pattern throughout the rest of your day.
Not only is this green smoothie healthy, but it’s super refreshing too. I brought the flavor of the tropics to this creamy beverage with pineapple, banana and coconut. Feeling an afternoon slump come on? Grab your blender and brighten up your day with this vibrant vegan drink. Full of electrolytes and immune boosters, it’s the perfect pick me up!
