pineapple nutrition

Pineapple is more than a delicious tropical fruit. It offers numerous health benefits due to its richness in vitamins and minerals, including potassium, copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C. Pineapple is also high in fiber and bromelain, an enzyme that aids in digestion, reduces inflammation and supports immune function. .

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • coconut milk coconut milk adds creaminess and tropical flavor to this smoothie. I used light canned coconut milk, but feel free to use light coconut milk if you prefer. If you don’t have coconut milk on hand, you can also use coconut water or another dairy-free milk of your choice, such as almond milk or oat milk. You can also use juice for the liquid base of this smoothie, such as pineapple juice or orange juice, if you like.
  • frozen pineapple and banana frozen pineapple chunks and banana add natural sweetness and create a thick, creamy texture.
  • yoghurt this adds more creaminess and some protein. I like to use coconut yogurt or vanilla Greek yogurt, but feel free to use your favorite yogurt.
  • honey or maple syrup optional, but can be added if you prefer a sweeter shake.

Taste and adjust the consistency as desired, adding more liquid for a thinner shake or a little ice for a thicker shake.
