Daily Smoothie: Pineapple-Nana Refuel

My training session was at home today and I refueled with this delicious Pineapple-Nana Smoothie. You guys know the deal, I used my base smoothie recipe, but for this one I replaced the Spinach with Kale and used Almond Coconut Milk for the Liquid. I added the Vegan Brown Rice Protein again, so far I haven’t had any issues with it, so I think it’s a keeper (but I will also continue to have wholefood meals as my post workout as well). **Note: Banana is not pictured.** Enjoy!!

Health Highlights: Several studies show that Ginger reduces pain and swelling with people with arthritis. It also works in the digestive tract, boosting digestive juices and neutralizing acids as well as reducing intestinal contractions. (Reader’s Digest Food Cures, 2012)
