Charlie’s Favorite Smoothie

Try this delicious smoothie on your most critical  little sprout!  Charlie came up with it himself and it is sweet, healthy…well, pretty fantastic!

Pineapple Banana Smoothie

1.5 cups frozen pineapple

1 ripe banana

2 T flax meal

1 big handful baby spinach

1.5 cups vanilla rice milk

handful of ice cubes

Why eat pineapple?  Loaded with vitamins and minerals, pineapple is  full of health benefits.  Manganese, a trace mineral, is needed to build connective tissues and bones.  Bromelain helps suppress coughs,  loosens mucus, and aids in digestion.  Pineapple is also known to prevent macular degeneration, which leads to vision loss, and alleviate arthritis. There’s plenty more, but I think you get the picture:)

Enjoy your holiday weekend!
