In the last couple of weeks I’ve been revisiting morning exercise after many, many months of hitting snooze. However, waking up at the crack of dawn (also referred to as 6:30 a.m.) doesn’t leave much time for breakfast, so I’ve started pre-preparing smoothies at night, drinking them after the gym. The ingredients you’ll find in my liquid meal include banana, kale, celery, mint, spinach, chia, Greek yogurt, and the all-important sweetener, pineapple.
In addition to being packed with vitamin C and magnesium, pineapple also tastes really, really good, making even the greenest concoction palatable. So—in the spirit of making every morning smoothie a little more like a piña colada—I’ve rounded up 11 easy and delicious pineapple-based recipes to try now.
