Pineapple Smoothie – a Beauty Product
Having tried (and fallen in love with) the Banana and Spinach Smoothie, I decided to experiment with different combinations of ingredients so that I could enjoy this drink as often as possible, but without getting bored with it. I still used spinach, but I replaced coconut water with apple juice (preferably, you’d use a natural one without any sugar added).
When it came to deciding about which fruit I was going to use, I chose a pineapple – an excellent source of Vitamin C and manganese as well as a very good source of copper which, combined with some other nutrients, make pineapple a very healthy fruit. Its main health benefits include improved digestion, boosted immune system (fewer colds, infections, etc.) and antioxidant protection that helps against some types of cancer as well as enhances the look of skin (reduces wrinkles, improves skin texture and fights damage caused by sun and pollution). I cannot imagine a tastier way of looking after my skin than having this beautiful pineapple smoothie!
P.S. If you would like to make this pineapple smoothie even more nutrient-packed, add chia seeds.
