Healthy Recipe: Amazing Arugula Smoothie

Last week we shared how to make a delicious banana split smoothie, and now here’s another one to try: the Amazing Arugula smoothie, courtesy of local registered dietitian Danielle Omar.

“It’s my favorite smoothie that I never get sick of,” Omar says of the greens-packed recipe.

Arugula adds a bit of spice and a kick of vitamins C and K to the mix, while the mango and pineapple promote lower blood pressure and healthy immune systems, respectively.
