Second week of my ‘One Smoothie Recipe a week’ challenge and I have another slightly sweet smoothie. This week’s fruit box had pineapple and kiwis so I used these two as my main ingredients and added some greens for extra fiber and nutrients. The recipe makes one big glass of smoothie so double up the ingredients if you want two servings.
The main ingredients for this week’s smoothie are pineapple, kiwi and spinach. I only need one cup of pineapple chunks (that’s around 180gr) so save the rest of your pineapple for another smoothie or perhaps your breakfast bowl. For the spinach, I also use one cup of chopped leaves that is around 4-5 big leaves chopped. In this smoothie, I added also a bit of coconut yoghurt for the texture and the calcium.
This smoothie is packed with vitamins and nutrients. It’s anti-inflammatory, detoxifying and a fantastic iron boost. Here is a breakdown of the most important nutrients that each ingredient offers:
- pineapple: vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, iron
- kiwi: vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, potassium, fiber
- spinach: vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium
- mint: vitamin A and antioxidants
You could store it in the fridge for the next day in an airtight bottle or glass. I do recommend though to drink it as soon as you blend it as fruits will lose some of their nutritional value.
