Blending them gives a sunset color and citrus taste which can easily transport your senses to a great tropical island experience. Imagine that you’re in paradise enjoying a sip of this smoothie. The cooling taste is pleasantly invigorating! A perfect treat on a hot summer day! Although, the citrus taste (and its health effects) is also great and apt for those cold days.

We also love the Citrus-Pineapple Smoothie Recipe because it’s a sippable, nutrient-packed drink. It’s got vitamins A and C, potassium, trace minerals, and fiber. The addition of Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and coconut flakes bring in awesome flavor and nutritional goodness. 

This smoothie is a seasonal changes protector, an immune system booster, great for your digestive system, and a weight loss aid! That’s a wealth of benefits with a wonderful, delightful taste.
