Pineapple Smoothie – Benefits and Properties for your Health

Do you like pineapple smoothie ? I hope so, since today I bring you to the blog the best pineapple smoothie recipes that I know and that I regularly prepare in my diet.

And not only that, but you will know all the benefits and properties of pineapple , which if you do not know it has a lot. It is a food that has to be in your kitchen yes or yes.

The pineapple (or pineapple in South America) belongs to the bromeliad family ( kidding… what? ).

Well yes, what you just heard. Bromeliads are a series of plants, among which is pineapple, which are rich in an enzyme called bromelain (also called bromelain )  which I will tell you about below.

Pineapple is a tropical fruit native to Paraguay and Brazil, although today its consumption has spread to the rest of the planet. Its yellow and super juicy meat ( 85% is made up of water ) is excellent to use in weight loss diets (it only has 60 calories per 100 grams ), due to its multiple diuretic, cleansing and fat burning properties.

Properties and Benefits of Pineapples

Before showing you the pineapple smoothies that I have prepared for you (don’t be impatient), let’s learn a little more about all the benefits that having this wonderful fruit in your kitchen can offer you:

  • Pineapples are fruits with an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese , an essential cofactor of various enzymes and very important for the production of energy and antioxidant defenses. A single cup of fresh pineapple provides 128 percent of the recommended daily allowance for this mineral.
  • It is a good source of Vitamin B1 , so its regular consumption prevents goiter and an enlarged thyroid gland.
  • Among its many properties, it is an excellent regulator of blood pressure , and is useful for fighting arthritis , intestinal worms, constipation (due to its high fiber content) and throat infections.
  • One of its most important enzymes is bromelain , with anti-inflammatory properties and it is important to treat diseases such as acute sinusitis, sore throat and gout.
  • In addition, bromelain helps you in the process of digestion , it is good to eliminate fluid retention (it is an excellent diuretic) and also if you are on a diet to lose weight, also preventing the appearance of cellulite.

¿ There are a few reasons to include it in your diet, right ?

Well, now that you’ve grown a little more cultured, go to hell ! Ahh, but first let me show you a video with some tips to cut pineapples without destroying the whole kitchen.

Fresh Pineapple Smoothie Recipes

Fresh highlighting , nothing canned or canned , we know each other.

Canned pineapple loses many nutritional properties and if you are on a weight loss diet it will not benefit you since they add many sugars and preservatives. Here everything fresh and healthy for your health.

To make a good selection of this fruit, you have to choose large and firm pineapples, yellow all over their surface. When the pineapples mature they have a good weight, so it is a sign that they are very juicy.

Well. Now that this is clear, let’s take a look at some healthy pineapple smoothies that I use regularly that are delicious.

This cleansing drink is great for when we spend the night before at a dinner and want to detoxify our body and purify it. You can include it in your usual breakfast or alternate it several times a week if you are doing some type of weight loss diet .

In addition to providing a large amount of Vitamin C from lemon and orange, celery produces a satiating effect that will keep you on a full stomach until mealtime.

I really like this smoothie so that children can have it for a snack , since it contains only fruit they will love it. In addition, the banana is one of the most energetic fruits (thanks to its high source of potassium), it does not have much fiber and above all it prevents cramps and injuries, so it is an excellent shake for your children to have for a snack or before practicing any sporting activity.

Pineapple and Cucumber smoothie for weight loss

Foods in this green smoothie

  • 2 slices of pineapple
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 lemon squeezed
  • A piece of ginger
  • 1 glass of water (about 150 ml)

Preparation of the green smoothie

  • Peel the natural pineapple into pieces and avoid the heart, since it is the part with the most bitter taste.
  • Wash the cucumber if it is organic or you must peel it. Then cut it into slices.
  • We cut a piece of ginger root (like a thumbnail).
  • Squeeze a lemon and put it in the blender together with all the ingredients and a glass of water.
  • Beat until you get a nice texture. You can add more water to make it more liquid or a little ice to keep it cool.

Benefits of this drink

This green smoothie is  excellent for eliminating fat from our body, so it is advisable if you are doing some type of diet to lose weight . I advise you to take it regularly in the morning for breakfast.

Cucumber is a food that is composed of 90% water , so it is excellent for eliminating toxins from your body and also contains a high fiber content , ideal for fighting constipation. Its very low calorie content (for every 100 grams about 15 calories) makes it an excellent vegetable to include in your weight loss diet.

It is advisable that you use organic cucumbers, since you can take advantage of their skin, which contains a high percentage of Vitamin A, C and E that will help delay the premature aging of your skin.
