Smoothie of the Day: Vitamin C Pineapple Berry Booster

I have been hearing from a lot of people that there is a cold/flu “bug” going around right now. This means we need to keep our immune system strong by including nutrient-dense foods in our diet. I love this smoothie because it is a great way to get a big dose of vitamins, especially vitamin C. It addition to vitamin C, it’s loaded with beta-carotene, folic acid, calcium, iron, potassium, and biotin. The flesh of a pineapple has been shown to aid in digestion and help reduce the risk of blood clots. Strawberries  contain a concentrated source of nutrients that make them a good for promoting good heart health. Try this smoothie out today!
