This lean and green pineapple, spinach and ginger smoothie is one of my favorites and is the perfect “pick me up”. Its packed with everything I need for the day. The combined ingredients contain a selection of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Its particularly high in vitamins A and C and therefore guaranteed to boost you immune system. Also, the spinach has a high iron content which should increase your energy levels; the ginger has anti-inflammatory properties; and the pineapple is said to alleviate muscle aches and pains. Making this a good all rounder.
I used a large handful of washed baby spinach, a small tin of pineapples (in its own juice) and about an inch and a half sized piece of fresh ginger, which was peeled and grated. This is a dairy-free smoothie so perfect for vegans.
Don’t let the green color scare you. Its very tasty! Its best to drink smoothies first thing on an empty stomach.
