Pineapple, Spinach and Ginger Smoothie

Spinach, pineapple and ginger smoothie

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.
