Smoothies are a great way to break down vitamins, minerals and enzymes which makes them easy to digest and absorb. I chose to use pineapple as part of a recovery smoothie because it is rich in bromelain, a protein-digesting enzyme known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also packed with fibre, potassium, and vitamin C – an important antioxidant for tissue growth and healing.
The addition of turmeric and ginger is key because of their powerful immune-boosting properties as well as their ability to combat inflammation. Lastly, coconut water is one of the most perfect beverages for restoring hydration and replenishing electrolytes post-exercise
- 1 banana
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 3/4 cup coconut water
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp ginger powder (or fresh grated)
- 1 tsp ground chia
- option – add a scoop of protein powder
Combine all ingredients in a high-power blender until smooth. You can add additional water or coconut water to achieve your favorite smoothie consistency
This particular smoothie isn’t packed full of protein, so feel free to add in a scoop of your favorite kind!
