Piña Kale-ada Smoothie

I know you have heard this many times but greens (especially kale) are one of the greatest things you can add into your diet. But not everyone enjoys eating them. Putting them in a smoothie is a great way to get the nutrients from your greens, and by combining them with fruit, you would never even know they are there.

Green smoothies are my favorite go to snack and are even great to have as a meal, especially for breakfast as a perfect start to your day. I love how I feel after having a green smoothie and this one in particular really gets me going.

Health Benefits

Pineapples contain high amounts of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce mucus in the throat and nose. A helpful fighter against problems such as heart disease and joint pain, pineapple is also high in manganese, which is essential in developing strong bones and connective tissue. Pineapples also contain high amounts of thiamin, a B vitamin that is involved in energy production. The pineapple is a great source of fiber, which is essential in keeping you regular and keeping your intestines healthy. Pineapples have great anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce severe inflammation and can even reduce tumor growth.
