I haven’t posted many smoothie recipes, but I do make them for myself regularly so I thought I’s share this one today.
On days when I want to decrease my morning caffeine or just want to up my greens first thing in the morning, I whip up this smoothie in my Magic Bullet.
This gluten-free smoothie has fresh spinach, parsley, ginger, avocado, frozen pineapple and coconut water in it. Let’s take a look at some of the ingredients in this smoothie.
- Spinach- leafy green vegetables like spinach are loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Spinach benefits eye health, helps prevent cancer and reduces blood pressure.
- Fresh ginger- Ginger is known for its health benefits such as anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. It has shown to help nausea, headaches, E Coli, and cold and flu symptoms.
- Fresh parsley- Parsley Fontaine’s flavonoids that are known to prevent cancer, protect against diabetes, improve bone health and has Vitamin K, C and A.
- Pineapple- Pineapple is full of nutrients, antioxidants and enzymes that help to fight inflammation and disease. It aids in digestion, boosts immunity and aids in reducing symptoms of arthritis.
All these benefits, and this gluten-free and dairy-free smoothie is delicious!
