Pineapple Kale Shake…A Whole Glass of Green Goodness!
1 cup of pineapple chunks (frozen or fresh)
1 cup of kale (if you can’t find kale, you can pick another of your favorite greens)
1 tbsp of fresh ginger (if that’s too much for your taste buds, add less)
A pinch of cayenne
1 cup water (you can also add ice if you like)
Ok, so this was my snack today. So simple and sooo good! Not only does it taste divine, but each ingredient will definitely work in your favor:
Pineapple is known to decrease inflammation in our internal organs, reduce swelling and speed up recovery of external injuries, and it contains the powerful enzyme, bromelain, which helps to digest proteins and cleanse the blood.
Kale is amazing for the complexion and bright eyes (the beauty green!) It belongs to the cruciferous veggie family, and that means Kale is excellent in supporting the liver’s main function of detoxifying and helping us shed those extra kilos.
Ginger is thermogenic, an anti-oxidant and antiseptic, and has been known to help combat a slough of ailments, from morning sickness, to migraine relief, to cold & flu prevention. A super cleanser, ginger is!
Cayenne, also a punchy little thermogenic metabolic booster, is anti-fungal, an anti-allergan, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial (a lot of ‘antis’ here), as well as a very effective detoxifying agent.
So there you have it. Four little wonder ingredients for an uber-boost that will make you look and feel great!
Try it out and let me know if you love this as much as I do!
