Avocado Pineapple Banana Protein Smoothie
We just had a Sprouts Farmers Market open up by my house and there were so many deals on produce that I just couldn’t resist grabbing just about everything. As I walked past all the fresh fruits and vegetables I just kept thinking about all of the delicious smoothie creations I could come up with. I don’t make many smoothies with pineapple because it’s pretty costly compared to other fruits, so I happily grabbed 3 fresh pineapple at a buck a piece while I was at Sprouts. Smoothies with pineapple here I come!
I told you guys a few weeks ago that I hurt my knee, so I have been taking extra care of it and I like to enjoy the foods that naturally help with inflammation. Sweet pineapple is one of those foods that helps with inflammation! So adding pineapple to a protein smoothie recipe was a no-brainer for me. My dash of turmeric also helps with inflammation, I am hoping to be able to run again one day…sooner than later! The avocado and banana in this smoothie recipe make it extra creamy and extra yum!
Here’s why I toss the other add-ins into my smoothies:
Chia seeds – These little guys are nutritional powerhouses, I add them into every smoothie.
Cinnamon – It has soooo many benefits, one of my favorites is that it helps increase your metabolism.
Protein Powder – Helps keep you full longer and makes your smoothie extra creamy.
