Raspberry Pineapple Mint Smoothie
This refreshing protein smoothie assists digestion and is perfect for those with a sweet tooth.
Pineapple provides high levels of dietary fibre and the enzyme Bromelian. Mint has been used for centuries for both promoting good digestion, and for alleviating digestive discomfort like inflammation, bloating, cramping and nausea.
Add to this the antioxidant and anti-cancer benefits of raspberries and you have one very healthy smoothie!
1½ cups chopped pineapple
¾ cup frozen raspberry
5 leaves of fresh mint
½ cup coconut water
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high until smooth. Add extra ice to make a refreshing summer-time slushy.
