Pineapple is seriously delicious, but did you know that it is also full of amazing properties?

These enzymes, known as bromelain, are really great at helping your digestive system break down proteins.
Fun fact: this delicious fruit is originated from South America and received the name, pineapple because the first explorers thought they looked like pine cones. Interesting, right?

Pack on the Frozen Fruits
If having healthy food easily available in your home is one of your goals, then we couldn’t recommend buying lots of frozen fruits (and veggies!) enough. Having a variety of fruits always on hand is a great way to make smarter choices and to whip up a green smoothie like this Kale Pineapple Smoothie one in a matter of minutes. You can also try out this delicious Banana Kale Smoothie as well!
The Blending Secret Trick
We want to let you in a little secret. You don’t need a fancy high-speed blender to make nutritious and delicious smoothies! You can use a regular blender and the result will be just as good. The trick? Make sure you blend the greens with the liquid before adding the fruits, and once it’s fully blended, add the rest of the ingredients.
