Drink in the sunshine with this refreshing smoothie! It will energize your morning or help you recover from a workout. It is tropically sweet with a spicy kick of fresh Ginger.
Smoothies are my addiction. I incorporate a smoothie into my menu most days. I find that I am more hydrated and more apt to eat fruits and veggies that I wouldn't otherwise work into my diet. The trick is to keep it healthy. The recipes are unlimited, but here is one of my favorites.
Start your day off with a powerhouse refresher
Not only is this recipe delicious, but it also offers multiple health properties. Pineapple is rich in vitamin C and aids in healthy digestion. Ginger has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and is known for its medicinal properties. The coconut water works at restoring hydration and electrolytes after a workout. I hope you enjoy it!
