Sometimes the best things in life really are the simplest. In this case, I'm talking about my latest green smoothie, the Pineapple Cooler. It's so easy it doesn't need a recipe. You just blend 2 cups of spinach, 1/2 cup of pineapple (frozen or fresh), and 1/2 of a banana with 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk. The result is a creamy, frothy tropical drink that doesn't pack on the pounds. And pineapple is a natural laxative, so this is the perfect drink for those of you who deal with chronic constipation. I know I know...we don't like to talk about these things in public...but let's be honest, being healthy starts from the inside out, and this drink will help keep you feeling cleansed. It's a great way to start - or end - your day!
