Collard Greens Pineapple smoothie is one of our all time favorite, I know– you don’t have to say it— yes every green smoothie is a favorite at our house, but honestly there are so many  ways to enjoy delicious  vibrant live food that are oh so healthy for you. We love green drinks at our home, if you have a ‘veggie picky eater’ at your home try a smoothie-seriously.

Pineapple contains a protein digesting enzyme call bromelain which encourages the excretion of hydrochloric acid. If you and the kiddos love pineapple, add some  collard green leaves  to it-  Collard green is  chockfull of amazing nutrients including calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin C etc
