Get Your Vitamins by Blending Pineapples!
It’s no secret that pineapples are one of the healthiest tropical fruits. Blending Pineapples with other fruits is a great way to get your vitamins. Pineapple is loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and other helpful compounds that can help protect against inflammation and disease. With plenty of Vitamin B6, copper, manganese, thiamine, and Vitamin C, pineapple juice supplements our body’s natural immunity. It can even boost your protection against the common cold!
Even better, pineapple is one of the most delicious tropical fruits out there. Blending pineapple with other fruits and vegetables is easy to do and makes for a tasty smoothie.
Blending Pineapples with Other Fruits
You know what they say: “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Even though their names are similar, apples and pineapples are not part of the same fruit family. Apples are part of the pome fruit family, which also includes pears.
However, just like pineapples, apples are extremely nutritious. Apples are rich in fiber and antioxidants. Also like pineapples, apples are packed with Vitamin C and magnesium. This gives both fruits great cleansing properties. The taste of pineapples and apples balance each other out because the sweetness of apples balances the sour taste of pineapple, due to its high acidity.
The other member of the pome fruit family, pears go with pineapple-like, well, apple and pineapple! Just like apples, pears are loaded with fiber and antioxidants. They are fat-free and a great source of potassium (like bananas). Pears are extra good for your digestive system and heart.
The first thought when making a smoothie is often not to include pears, but they compliment pineapples just as well as apples and add even more great health benefits.
Moving over to the citrus family, oranges are a must-have in your pineapple smoothies. Citrus might as well stand for Vitamin C because one orange makes up a huge portion of your recommended daily value of Vitamin C.
Other citrus fruits that pair well with pineapples are lemon and lime.
But, don’t stop there; peaches, raspberries, strawberries, tamarind, mango, and papaya all taste great when juiced with pineapple. Keep in mind while making smoothies the way to get the most nutrients is by using freshly squeezed juice—if you’re able!
