My Favorite Green Pineapple Banana Smoothie

Made my favorite green pineapple banana smoothie this morning! ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒ

I havenโ€™t made this smoothie in a long time because of the recent hype over sugar. Iโ€™ve been avoiding high sugar fruits, including bananas and pineapples. While I agree that we are eating way too much sugar and need to cut down on sugar, particularly refined sugar, I think that eliminating it completely would also eliminate some of the joys in what you eat. Instead, Iโ€™m focusing on increasing my awareness of added sugars to meals. Furthermore, eliminating high sugar fruits also means missing out on their great health benefits. Pineapples are hydrating, which is important for summer, are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, contain fiber, and have anti-inflammatory effects. And they are soooo good!

I feel great great when I have this smoothie. Iโ€™m a firm believer in listen to your body, not to trends.

 

Ingredients:

1 cup frozen spinach

2 frozen bananas

3/4 cup frozen pineapple

1 scoop of Artisana Organics almond butter

1 scoop of wheatgrass powder

Cinnamon

The Harmless Coconut coconut water to get the right consistency

Goji berries to top
