Start your day right with this delicious vegan Pineapple & Berries Superfood Smoothie – Packed with health benefits, it gives you the perfect morning energy boost!
There’s nothing better than having a quick, refreshing smoothie for breakfast. Pineapple, mixed berries, basil and coconut water all come together to make sure you get your daily income of healthy nutrients.
Pineapple and berries are both my favorite superfoods and I use them as much as I can when it comes to smoothies. They’re both packed with Vitamin C and anti-oxidants, which defend our body against free radicals that attack and damage “healthy” cells. Also, pineapple is a natural sweetener, making this Superfood smoothie is totally sugar-free.
I often use frozen berries when making smoothies, what a bless they are! Available all-year-round, frozen berries are great for smoothies, you don’t need to add ice cubes and they give extra creaminess to the drink.
As you’ve noticed, I’ve also added some basil leaves to this Superfood smoothie. Why? Basil is a fantastic source of Vitamin K, and it has also a good amount of magnesium, which promotes cardiovascular health.
Contrary to most smoothie recipes, I didn’t add any diary or dairy-free milk. I’ve only used a splash of coconut water, which adds extra health benefits to this already super healthy smoothie. Coconut water is known to give a natural hydration boost, plus it’s full of nutrients including calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and sodium.
This Pineapple & Berry Superfood Smoothie has everything you need to get your day started at the very best, plus it’s vegan, low in fat and calories and absolutely DELICIOUS!
