Give your next green smoothies a distinctly tropical twist by adding pineapple to them! Although pineapple is a citrus fruit, it lacks the bite in taste that other citrus fruits, such as grapefruits and limes, have. Between its wonderful taste and the host of nutritional benefits it has to offer, you will wonder why you did not begin to add pineapples to your green smoothies a lot sooner!
When you include pineapple in your green smoothies, you will be providing your body with an excellent source of manganese and Vitamins C, B1, and B6. Pineapples also possess considerable amounts of copper and dietary fiber. Furthermore, the regular consumption of pineapples can also assist in regulating your body’s digestive tract. Why would you not want to include pineapples in your green smoothies from now on?
- 1 cup pineapple
- 1 whole banana
- 1 apple

- 1/2 – 1 cup of purified water
Add each of these ingredients to your blender one at a time and blend together on the “high” setting until they are mixed thoroughly. The recipe for these green smoothies is guaranteed to become one of your new favorites!
