I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been living on anything cold or frozen lately, and smoothies have been saving my life. This heat in Texas is brutal!
I love anything pina colada flavored, tropical fruity things are my favorite. So I knew that I had to create a nutrient-packed smoothie that would give me those tropical vibes even when I’m not at the beach. This delicious smoothie takes minutes to whip up, and is PACKED with all the good stuff.
Let me give you the run down ->
bananas – potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6, and fiber
pineapple – vitamin C, manganese, fiber, and digestive enzymes
spinach – folate, vitamin C, iron, and fiber
protein powder – I used Orgain vanilla protein in this recipe because I love their products. This one even has added probiotics for digestion
matcha powder – packed full of antioxidants, helps detoxify the body, contains clean caffeine so you won’t feel jittery
All of the amazing benefits of these ingredients are exactly what we need in the summer time. Smoothies like this will keep up hydrated and give us the energy and nutrients we need during the hottest months of the year.
So blend up a pina colada smoothie and imagine yourself on a tropical island!
