Smoothie of the Day: Pineapple Grapefruit Smoothie with Ginger

This is a great smoothie to make first thing in the morning! It’s loaded with nutrients that will help get you energized and happy. The grapefruit in this smoothie is a good source of vitamin C, E, beta-carotene, folate and calcium. It’s also a good source of fiber which will gives the sense of “fullness”, making it an ideal food for people looking to manage their weight. The pineapple in the smoothie is a great source of vitamin C, manganese, fiber, and vitamin B6. It also provides the body with anti-inflammatory benefits, making it the perfect food for those healing from an injury or suffering from joint pain. I like to add a little ginger to this smoothie for a nice kick of flavor. The ginger promotes good circulation in the body in addition to boosting immunity and moods. Give this smoothie a try today!
