Did you know just 1 cup of pineapple has over 100% of your daily vitamin C needs? That’s enough to make this a superfood smoothie, but the mango packs over 25% of your vitamin A – that’s an antioxidant that busts out those free radicals from your body, and pumps up your immunity.
So you know it’s healthy, but is it delicious? HECK YES. Pineapple and mangoes are amazingly sweet, and the banana gives it that creaminess that sends this smoothie over the top. It’s tropical, its refreshing, and you should make it right meow.
Mango Pineapple Immunity Boosting Green Smoothie
Makes: 1 16oz serving
- 1 slice of pineapple (I put in the whole pineapple slice – including the core. A vitamix can handle it!)
- 1/2 cup mangos
- 1 banana
- 1 almond milk cube (I make homemade almond milk, then freeze them in ice trays to use later!)
- 2 packed cups spinach
- 2 tbspn chia seeds
- 1 cup water
Add water, goji berries, fruit, almond milk cube, and lettuce in that order. Blend until desired consistency is reached.
Tip – Use frozen fruit to keep your smoothie icy cold. Don’t have frozen fruit on hand? Throw in a handful of ice.
