Try this nutrient-packed green smoothie with fresh cut pineapples, spinach, chia seeds and coconut milk to kick off your day.
I think we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not only because it gives you energy for the activities during the morning, but breakfast also helps you to make better food choices at other meals and to prevent that mid-morning slump.
So, green juices and smoothies are definitely the freshest, fastest way to get more nutrients at breakfast time.
So, for all of these reasons, I am a huge fan of breakfast and one of my favorite ways to have a nutritious first meal of the day is with my creamy pineapple green smoothie recipe.
This pineapple green smoothie has such a naturally sweet and delicious flavor that you won’t even notice you’re filling yourself with lots of spinach, which is loaded with lots of essential nutrients for your body.
Another great ingredient I always use when I am making my smoothie is chia seeds because it adds healthy omega-3 fats, fiber, and a little protein.
I almost never add honey or maple because the pineapple and the coconut milk are already sweet enough for my taste. But of course, if you prefer, you can add a tablespoon of honey or maple. It is all up to you.
I really hope you get inspired and make a nutritious and delicious smoothie like this one for your breakfast today and thanks a lot for reading.
The Best Blender for Smoothie:
You definitely need to own a good blender to make a delicious smoothie. Otherwise your smoothie will be full of lumps, which is not what we want, right?
For sure my favorite blender that I highly recommend are:
- NutriBullet: This one is amazing because allows you to blend in the cup you’ll be drinking from. It’s so practical and makes clean up a breeze. Who doesn’t like that, correct?
- Vitamix: This is the most powerful blender ever. You can easily crush ice into a drinkable slush and cut through frozen fruits, nut and seeds well. I make smoothies, my low-carb blueberry muffins, my mashed cauliflower and lots of soups with it. It’s also make sauces, spreads and digs. I love it so much and really recommend it.
