Pineapple “Green-ade” Smoothie Recipe

Pineapple Green SmoothieThis delicious smoothie creation was sent to me by Chrissy. It’s green, it’s sweet and it’s got a heaping dose of minerals for you!

This smoothie makes about 12 ounces (depending on the size of the mango and cucumber you use) and it has a delicious tropical fusion flavor. The pineapple and mango blend nicely with the cucumber and spinach for a refreshing health drink.

Cucumber contains erepsin, an enzyme that helps to digest protein. Their skin is also very high in minerals and they make a great low calorie addition to your smoothie.

Mangoes are a great source of fiber. This smoothie contains about 25% of your daily recommend value!
