When infusing luscious greens into your smoothie, not only does the taste of the smoothie become more delightful, but the health benefits become boosted as well! For this recipe, we will use spinach. Spinach is one of the most healthiest green choices we can incorporate into a meal, as the leafy treat contains zinc, protein, calcium, potassium, among many other beneficial elements–while also containing a vast array of vitamins that span through the alphabet; from vitamin C to vitamin B-6. Let us introduce to you the Tropical Popeye.
This tasty smoothie is full of benefits for our health, and is also simple to make, demanding very little. To make this, you will need some kind of blender of course, spinach, pineapple, almond milk, 1/2 of a banana, and some oats.
Load your blender with 1/2 cup of spinach and 2 cups of any almond milk you prefer. Lightly blend for 5 seconds.
Then, add your half of banana, 5 tablespoons of oats, 1 cup of squared pineapple pieces, and three cubes of ice. Now blend for 45-60 seconds.
This drink alone is delicious, and is a great and healthy way to begin any morning. The spinach induces vitamins and beneficial elements, the banana and pineapple add to this vitamin rush while creating a pleasing tropical taste, and the oats act as efficient anti-oxidants; overall, this smoothie is great for dieting and is extremely low in calories.
Whether you are on a diet or not, the Tropical Popeye is great for anyone who wishes to achieve a healthy life. Its rich and vibrant green color is enough to dazzle anyone you pour this drink for, and if you want to spice up the appearance for a guest, garnish it with a pineapple wedge, and a spinach leaf. Your guest will be in heaven after the first sip!
