Pineapple: One cup of pineapple has more than 100 percent of your daily recommended value for vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can ward off damage to healthy cells.

If one of your goals is to drink more water, this smoothie can help you meet your hydration goals. Getting enough fluids is important for healthy digestion and good-looking skin.

Coconut water : Coconut water is high in potassium. The 1/2 cup in one serving of the smoothie delivers 300 mg of potassium, and the other ingredients bump the total up to 433 mg.
