I’ve realized spring is late this year but the spirit of spring is still in my heart!! So,I have been trying some tropical recipes to fight the winter blues and keep the workouts flowing even with the cold and grey days. In my tropical list the first place belongs to PINEAPPLE then bananas, coconut milk, coconut flakes, ginger, mangoes, and greens such as spinach and kale (for smoothies).

In an attempt to avoid catching a cold I decided to add more ginger to our daily juices/smoothies and I found the perfect recipe for it, before I will share some tips to get rid of those ugly colds:

TIP 1 : Drink green tea and lots of water

TIP 2: Drink a cup of water with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar every 3 hours ( to keep your ph alkaline)

TIP3: Morning booster! Hot water with honey, lemon and grated ginger. ( I also like to add some cayenne pepper! )

TIP 4: Hot bath (keep yourself hydrated before, during and after the bath)

TIP 5 : Get some miso and  add some ginger and lemon, if your nose is blocked and you like spicy taste add some sriracha!

OK! Now lets go to the main recipe…

INGREDIENTS:

1  1/2 Diced fresh pineapple (can be frozen)

1 Banana

1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger

1 cup almond milk (or coconut milk, I like to put half & half)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Blend all the ingredients together (in a blender!) until smooth and enjoy !
