The Pineapple Smoothie Page

Who doesn’t love a pineapple smoothie to give you a little tropical taste every now ‘n’ then!

Pineapples have a very unique tangy & sweet taste that mixes well in a drink not to mention they're exceptionally juicy so you won’t need to add much water to these recipes because the water/juice content is already in the fruit – YUMMY!

Healthy Smoothie Benefits

A healthy smoothie has the potential to make you one of the best tasting most nutritious meal you’ve ever had.

The fruits and vegetables blended up in your smoothie work together to provide many vitamins, minerals and enzymes that come in the whole-food form.

Healthy smoothies retain the fiber from your fruits and vegetables. The fiber works to improve digestion by helping your body to eliminate harmful toxins. Fiber also leaves people to feeling more satisfied for longer.

Why do Healthy Smoothies retain Fiber?

Smoothies retain the fruits and vegetables fiber because the entire piece of produce is put into the blender and blended up; therefore, keeping the fiber. Whereas if you juiced your produce your juicer would extract the pulp (meaning fiber) thus making it liquid vitamins – which is very good for you too, but we also acknowledge that fiber is very important too.

Too many people are not consuming enough fiber, and they don’t even realize it and it’s causing health issues. Many times, health issues can to solve by healing the gut. This is where the smoothie come in, because with a smoothie you get the juice right along with the fiber – it’s a win-win!
