Greening Your Gut Smoothie

Chlorophyll is liquid sunshine. As you work to protect and rebuild your gut with healthy probiotic and enzyme-rich foods, chlorophyll helps the gut rebuilding process with rich green nutrients that actually feed the probiotics that are working so hard to keep you healthy. This gloriously green ingredient also supports the liver in detox, and speeds wound healing by building blood and oxygenating cells. Green plants are the best source of chlorophyll, and chlorella powder is an easy way to boost your intake. This is a refreshing and easy-to-digest smoothie. You can leave out the pineapple if you want something a little less sweet.
