This delicious, dairy free, Pineapple Smoothie is sure to become a favorite of yours. Two ingredients and easy to whip up! Yes!
While looking for an after workout snack recently and wanting to keep it relatively quick and easy, I made this smoothie. Two ingredients and just a few minutes and I was all set.
What I love about pineapple besides the wonderfully sweet tropical taste is the health benefits. Did you know that pineapples are reported to provide antioxidant and immune protection, as well as anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits? And containing Bromelain, it is a natural anti-inflammatory and pain killer. Sometimes, I will throw in a few pieces of frozen pineapple in to whatever smoothie I happen to be making. It adds a little sweetness in addition to all the nutritional goodness.
I recently purchased a Nutribullet and love it, however, it would recommend going with the slightly more powerful version if you are in the market for a smoothie blender. If you make smoothies often, it is worth it. I also like the Ninja and Vita Mix blenders.
So, in addition to being fast, easy and delicious, this smoothie is healthy. Makes me smile. 🙂
We have had such splendidly warm Indian summer days here in New England lately, so a pineapple smoothie is refreshing.
We are at “peak” now for foliage and it has been such a beautiful fall, we can’t complain. I want to savor the last bit of warm weather before the inevitable cold and snow. Sitting in the sun sipping this pineapple smoothie is amazing. Like smoothies? Me too! Some others to try: Blueberry Pineapple Smoothie, Strawberry Smoothie, Green Keen Smoothie (which has spinach), or Anti-Inflammatory Green Smoothie, Tropical Pina Colada or a Green Kale Smoothie.
Although, as the weather starts changing, I am looking forward in the next few months to making some of my delicious soups and finding new favorites.
Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? Do you have a favorite pineapple recipe?
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. 🙂 As always, thank you for stopping by!
