Pineapple has long been used as digestive aid in folk remedies.
Whilst some folk remedies are questionable, it turns out they were right in this case.
Pineapples are a great source of the enzyme bromelain which helps to break down proteins. This is great news if you have overindulged on meat this weekend.
For this smoothie, I have combined pineapple & lemon since both may boost digestion.
Why should you be bothered about better digestion? Well, you have no other way of absorbing nutrients from food so getting this part right is crucial.
Ingredients for 2:
1/2 small pineapple, skin removed, cubed
1 lemon, peeled
a cup of greens (I used spinach)
1 cup of almond milk (or a handful of almonds and a cup of water)
3 ice cubes
Blend until smooth.
Pour into awesome glasses.
