Pineapple Lime Smoothie

PREP TIME: 5 mins

SERVINGS: 1-2 Persons

Preparation

This smoothie is a powerhouse of goodness! Super refreshing and perfect on hot summer days. Packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Manganese, good fats and so much more. The health benefits are endless but I will give you just a few reasons to incorporate these foods into your daily diets:

Pineapples and limes are a great source of ​Vitamin C​!​ ​T​he primary water-soluble antioxidant found in our bodies which protect​s​ us from free-radical damage. This translates to keeping our arteries healthy, reduction/prevention of certain cancers and supporting healthy joins.

Manganese ​​is also abundant in pineapples. ​A trace mineral essential in energy production an​d​ another free-radical busting antioxidant.

Vitamin K found in leafy greens such as parsley is vital to our bone health. Women who have passed through menopause and are experiencing bone loss benefit greatly consuming Vitamin K rich foods to prevent future fractures.

Medjool Dates are a fantastic source of fiber which assists in regulating blood sugar, keeps cholesterol levels in check and supports your digestive system by helping things move right along ;)

Flax Seeds, cashews and coconut butter are all fantastic source of good fat! We need fat to keep your skin beautiful and soft, help us absorb fat-soluble vitamins and provide us with energizing fuel. Don't be shy to eat fat but be sure to eat the good stuff!

I can go on on about the health benefits of this amazing smoothie but I will stop here. I hope you enjoy this refreshing concoction as much as I do.
