HAPPY DIGESTION SMOOTHIE

This green smoothie is packed with digestion-enhancing and immune-boosting foods like pineapple, parsley, ginger, and avocado. Don't worry though; its sweet flavor makes it friendly for green smoothie newbies!

If you are averse to the spiciness of ginger, I recommend starting with half the amount and adding to taste from there.

This smoothie also keeps well overnight. I will often make a double batch, save leftovers in a small mason jar in the fridge overnight, and enjoy it the next morning.

Ingredients:

  • 1 heaping cup frozen pineapple chunks

  • 1/2 large frozen banana

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 cup coconut water

  • 1/4 cup packed fresh parsley leaves

  • 2 tablespoons avocado

  • 1 teaspoon packed fresh grated ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon probiotic powder, optional

  • lemon or lime slice, for garnish

Directions:

1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend on the highest speed until super smooth.

Tips:

  • Feel free to add a handful of baby spinach to boost the nutrient power even more.

  • Fresh mint also gives this smoothie a nice digestion boost (not to mention a delicious minty flavor).
