Pineapple Cooler smoothie

Pineapples contain exceptional amounts of antioxidant vitamin C for high immunity and better skin and are a great source of manganese for strong and healthy bones. They are also a rich source of the digestive enzyme bromelain. Bromelain in pineapples helps to break down protein in your meals during digestion, but it can have many other beneficial effects on your health. Arthritis and osteoporosis can respond very well to concentrated bromelain and it is even being studied to reduce the growth of cancerous tumours. The core of the pineapple contains the most bromelain, so to get some of these health benefits, it's best to blend up at much of the core as possible in your pineapple smoothie. Here's our Pineapple Cooler smoothie recipe...
In addition to the health benefits of pineapple, this smoothie recipe is highly cooling thanks to the cucumber and alkalizing due to the spinach. Plus the the high levels of silica in cucumber can really help improve your skin tone and the strength and shine of your hair - extra bonus! To tip: It's best to start with the greens, chopping up the stems well and throwing them down to the base of the blender where the blades can pulverize them. Follow with the chopped pineapple and add the cucumber on top as it blends easily. Add a little lemon or lime juice for extra tang!
