Pineapple, Spinach & Ginger Green De-Tox Smoothie!

 

Am I having fun yet?  I’m referring to all of these smoothie concoctions that I’ve been experimenting with.  Well, yes and no.  Truthfully I’d rather be stuffing my face with a deep dish double-layered Chicago style pizza, just to name one outrageously fattening food that I could choose from.  But that’s not going to happen for some time and only for a splurge when I visit my son in Chi-town.
.
So here’s Smoothie recipe #2 that I posted a week or so ago.  This green drink was much more effective in it’s claim to ‘de-tox’ due to the pineapple.  I mean to tell you that you will be ‘cleansing’ (to put it nicely) alright!!!  No doubt about the accuracy of the name ‘de-tox’ in this green potion!
.
However, since I do not have a juicer, I couldn’t churn up the pineapple and spinach into a ‘true’ smoothie.  So it was a little more lumpy than the first smoothie.  The taste was just fine though, and that’s a key factor for acceptability in my book!  You can’t even taste the spinach and instead your tastebuds really pick up on the fruit and ginger elements.  It’s quite nice!

Here’s the recipe for you if you’d like to try it:
