This refreshing and nutrient-packed smoothie is full of heart-healthy fiber and potassium, thanks to the pineapple and banana mixed in. Spinach brings essential nutrients such as vitamin K (which helps keep bones and tissues in top shape) and vitamin A (which helps maintain healthy skin). While this smoothie may seem high in carbs, Doerfler says not to let that scare you away — just rein in your intake for the rest of the day. Craving something a bit more filling? Add a scoop of protein powder before blending. Photo and recipe: Ali Ebright / Gimme Some Oven.
