In this season when many of us are resolving to eat cleaner and prioritize our health and how we fuel our bodies, it’s important to have go-to recipes handy. For those moments when you feel your day has been sabotaged by snacking and poor choices, when your kids are giving you a run for your money or when you’re feeling rundown and need a pick me up, I’ve got you covered. This is my go-to green smoothie when I’m looking for something to help me recharge and recover. And trust me, it works!

Pineapple and Mint Green Smoothie Recipe

It’s a simple recipe, but honestly, the combination is so refreshing and cleansing that it tastes much more complicated than it actually is. The mint leaves are fantastic for promoting digestion and cleaning your palette. And while you might not think of a smoothie as a winter option, if you can deal with the cold, it’s actually a great choice for many reasons including being a particularly good cold/cough chaser as its rich is antioxidants and vitamin C. In addition, the mint has the ability to soothe a cough and help relieve congestion.Pineapple Mint Green Smoothie

The BEST green smoothies to kick winter colds

I am constantly making this smoothie and it’s been approved by all members of our family. If you’re working on positive changes in 2017, don’t get discouraged by bad days or sick days because winter can be full of them, take a few minutes, sip a smoothie, refuel and recharge with something that makes you feel good.
