I love drinking this pineapple mint smoothie on a hot summer afternoon when I have completed my workout for the day and I feel the need to re hydrate. Refreshing and reinvigorating, this smoothie is the perfect summer drink. The banana provides potassium, which is one of the main electrolytes your body needs to balance fluid levels in your body, the kale adds a nice boost of fibre, the pineapple contains bromelain, which is great for energizing tired muscles and fighting inflammation and the mint is wonderful for soothing the digestive system and fighting fatigue. Plus, it tastes so damn good that you’ll drink it for the taste alone! One of my dedicated recipe testers, Vivian Ngai, took this wonderful photo and sent it to me, so I thought I would share it with all of you. You can follow Vivian on twitter and instagram where she will be sharing more gorgeous pics of my recipes.
