Pineapple Apple Green Smoothie
Smoothies are a wonderful way to get in all those fruits and vegetables that our bodies need. Smoothies are also an easy way to sneak in extra nutrients and vitamins. In this Pineapple Apple Green Smoothie, I also added in cinnamon, turmeric, protein powder, and Derma Matrix, all of which do amazing things for ME. And, at the end of the day, I always feel better when smoothies are in my daily diet.
Here’s what’s in my Pineapple Apple Green Smoothie…and why:
Pineapple – This tropical delight not only contains the enzyme bromelain (which aids in the digestion of protein and can help with inflammation), it’s also packed with vitamin C.
Apples – An apple a day….Well, you know you the story.
Carrots – The orange powerfood will give you vitamin A and is also linked to preventing cancer, giving you healthier looking skin and aids in digestion.
Cucumbers – Did you know that they are 95% water? That means they are great for rehydration. Cucumbers are also a great source of vitamin B, so that means they are a natural pick-me-up.
Greens – Well, because it’s a green smoothie! Plus, greens are great for us.
Chia seeds – These little guys are nutritional powerhouses, I add them into every smoothie I make.
NeoCell Derma Matrix – This is a collagen skin complex that promotes the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, it also can increase hydration and support cell turnover and elasticity. I’m not getting any younger, so I will take all the help I can get 😉
Turmeric – Soooo many benefits, but one of the main ones is it helps with inflammation, I add it into every smoothie I make.
Cinnamon – Also many benefits, one of my favorites is that it helps increase your metabolism. I add it into every smoothie I make.
Protein Powder – Helps keep me full longer and makes my smoothie extra creamy.
Coconut water – For extra hydration.
