Are you wondering why anyone would be excited to drink something as green as this? I hear ya...
It's not as bad as it looks or sounds.
A Green smoothie is meant to kickstart your metabolism into high gear, curve your appetite, fight off common colds and flu, and give you that high energy you need to start your day or your workout.
It also has the power to burn calories while you’re, well, not doing anything at all! And even relieves muscle aches and pains after a workout. That’s the ginger doing its job.
Not only does it burn fat, but this smoothie also helps your hair and nails grow fast. It’s a great drink for postpartum moms who notice their hair shedding more than usual (a depletion of nutrients in the body after birth, breastfeeding, etc).
My point is, taking a glass of green smoothie every day, does a whole bunch of good to the body.
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 handfuls baby spinach
1 ripe banana
1 cup almond milk
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 tsp of ginger
1 tbsp chia seeds
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO:
- Place all of the ingredients into a blender. Pulse until smooth.
- If the smoothie is too thick, add water. If too thin, add ice.
- Serve and garnish with a sprinkle of chia seeds, (optional).
