Chef Gwen's Pineapple Treasure Smoothie

Posted by: Garden of Life on Monday, December 09, 2013

Today Chef Gwen shared a smoothie that is a powerhouse of taste and nutrition.

Perfect Food® RAW Alkalizer & Detoxifier is the perfect RAW organic green super food complement to support your body’s daily balancing act; promoting healthy elimination of toxins and supporting your body’s own ability to maintain its ideal pH balance.

Organic Chia Seeds are an essential superfood addition to your modern, fast-paced diet. Our premium Chia promotes heart and brain health, maintains healthy cholesterol and blood sugar as well as healthy digestion and elimination with 3g of Omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid ALA) and 1g of Omega-6 (linoleic acid LA) per serving.



Pineapples are loaded with vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium. It is also rich in fiber and calories. On top of it all, this fruit is low in fat and cholesterol. Bromelain found in pineapples work to neutralize fluids to ensure that they are not too acidic. It also helps regulate the secretions in the pancreas to aid in digestion. Apart from that, since bromelain has protein-digesting properties, it can keep the digestive track healthy.

Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C,K, folate, and B6. Half an avocado has 160 calories, 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams saturated fat. One globe contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K.

I don't know about you, but I'm off to make this smoothie right now!
