Pineapple is one of those tropical fruits that many people enjoy, but did you know that pineapple contains a number of important health benefits?
The bromelain in pineapple has important anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits. Some people find taking a bromelain supplement with food helps with digestion and away from food helps reduce inflammation in the body.
While the amount of bromelain in the whole fruit won’t contain as high a dose for therapeutic benefits, it is still a great option for preventative health.
The canned coconut milk contains the healthy fats that will help to modulate the blood sugar impact of the fruit in this smoothie. If you really want to take it to the next level nutritionally, add in a handful of dark, leafy greens.
