Pineapple Carrot Protein Smoothie
A smoothie a day is a must for me. And just about every day it’s something different, well, because what I have in my refrigerator is always changing. I wasn’t even going to post this smoothie recipe because I thought it would be a bit boring. I mean it only has one fruit and one veggie and some greens. But, after I took the first sip, I was grabbing for my camera. I couldn’t wait to share it with you all – It was delicious!!
Pineapple – Pineapple is packed with vitamin C and contains the enzyme bromelain (which aids in the digestion of protein and can help with inflammation).
Carrots – Are linked to preventing cancer and giving you healthier looking skin, plus they give you vitamin A and aid in digestion.
Chia seeds – Are nutritional powerhouses, I add them into every smoothie.
Turmeric – It has so many benefits, but one of the main ones is it helps with inflammation.
Cinnamon – Has many benefits, one of my favorites is that it helps increase your metabolism.
Protein Powder – Helps keep you full longer and makes your smoothie extra creamy.
