About - The Co-op

This pineapple mango smoothie is the perfect smoothie for these hot summer days when you want something cold, creamy, and fresh! This smoothie is packed with fresh spinach for a good boost of alkalinity, frozen pineapple, mango, banana, and a whole fresh lime that keeps the smoothie super fresh and a bit zesty!

Practice Food Combining | Best Combines With Neutrals

Fruit-containing smoothies combine best with other fruits or neutral greens. Examples of neutral greens include spinach, mixed greens, kale, romaine, and vegetables like cucumbers, sprouts, etc. 

When having fruit-based smoothies, it’s best to omit protein powders or “superfoods” like chia seeds, hemp, flax, etc. When you combine fruit with proteins like nut butters, seeds, and nut milk, the fruit ferments on top of the slow-to-digest protein and will create lots of gas, bloating, and digestive discomfort. Fruit sugar quickly cleanses the body and is digested in only 30-45 minutes, so it’s best to eat fruit alone or only pair it with greens. 

If you need to add or wish to add more liquid to your smoothie, I always use filtered water or harmless harvest coconut water. I recommend harmless harvest because the coconut water is raw and filled with living enzymes and sugars. When sugar is alive and raw, it will vibrate through the cell walls and lightly cleanse cells rather than spiking glucose levels. If you consume dead or cooked sugars, like shelf-stable coconut water. 

PRACTICE FOOD ORDER | BEST EATEN IN THE MORNING

Enjoy Smoothies In the morning in place of a green juice or after your green juice! Since most smoothies contain fruit, it’s best to consume smoothies on an empty stomach, or as said above, you may follow a smoothie after a green juice.
