Pineapples are high in vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C and fiber that help to build immunity, prevent constipation and asthma. Pineapple is well known for its unique enzyme called bromelain that is believed to inhibit tumor growths and relieve arthritis and help to digest fats in human body.

Pineapple smoothie is best to consume on its own without any accompaniment for better digestion and absorption of nutrients. Choose fresh pineapple, chop fresh (instead of using refrigerated or frozen or canned), blend fresh and consume fresh for the best health benefits.
- Use fresh and ripe pineapple for sweeter flavor.
- I prefer to use almond flour but you skip it or use soaked and peeled almonds or cashews.
- Use young ginger for a milder and sweeter flavor.
- Coconut water is nutrient rich and makes a great substitute for any liquid in a smoothie. You may use coconut milk that comes in cartons. Avoid using the canned thick coconut milk
