Green Drink

By Melanie Douglass and Mom

Green Drink

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of unsweetened pineapple juice (or pour off the juice from 1 can of pineapple rings)
  • 4 cups of fresh spinach

Method:

Blend until smooth.

That's the base recipe... but feel free to add carrots, cucumbers, apples, or other leafy greens. If you're looking for quick and simple, it doesn't get any easier than 2 ingredients! (Spinach is a nutrient-packed superfood and should therefore always be the base vegetable.)

Makes 2 (3/4-cup servings). Nutrients per serving: 80 cals, 3 gm fiber, 3 gm protein + good source of Vitamin A, K, C, folate, calcium, iron and the phytochemicals Lutein and Zeaxanthin (these phytochemicals help protect the eyes).
