Good morning green smoothie

When you have kids, you come up with all sorts of ideas to ensure their growing bodies are getting enough greens. That is exactly how I came up with this green smoothie. The pineapple, banana and pear make it plenty sweet, so they won’t know that I snuck celery, cucumber, kale and ginger in there.

Celery and ginger are anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral; kale boosts digestive health, containing fiber, antioxidants, calcium and vitamin C; cucumber promotes hydration, may lower blood sugar and is low in calories. What’s not to love?

Serves 2.
