Orange Pineapple Passion smoothie recipe

Orange Pineapple Passion Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow squash - chopped
  • 4 oz pineapple
  • 1 orange - peeled
  • 3 oz blueberries
  • 1 tsp acai berry
  • 3 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

In addition to being full of vitamin A and C, yellow squash is a great source of manganese, an essential mineral for processing fats, carbs and glucose into energy. It also blends seamlessly into smoothies, creating a creamy texture with a light taste profile. Even though acai has been touted as a weight loss aid (which may be due to its high amount of fiber and inflammation-lowering antioxidants), nothing definitive has been scientifically proven. It’s still great for you, as are walnuts (with their healthy fats and vitamin E), and blueberries, which are high in fiber but low in sugar.
