Raw Pina Colada Smoothie

This smoothie is wonderful for summer because of it's lush tropical flavours. It has energy-replenishing electrolytes that are lost through sweat throughout the day, and contains bromelain enzyme from the pineapple (you can read all about the amazing health benefits of bromelain HERE). 

This smoothie will help reduce inflammation in individuals suffering from arthritis, sinusitis, inflammatory bowel disease, sports injuries, trauma, burns, prostatitis, and swelling and bruising after surgery. It is effective in suppressing the growth of cancer cells, including melanoma and aids in heart and circulatory health and improves breathing conditions like asthma!

If you want an amazing blender, I highly suggest you purchase a vitamix! It makes the smoothest, most creamiest smoothies, raw soups and sauces I have ever experienced! If you purchase a vitamix through Live Love Fruit, you will get FREE shipping and handling! Click HERE to purchase.

- 2 cups ripe pineapple
- coconut meat and water from one young thai coconut
- 2 oranges, juiced
- 1 tsp. vanilla bean (or raw vanilla bean powder)

Put the above ingredients into a blender and pulse blend for 15-30 seconds! Enjoy :)
