I discovered a delightful green coloured smoothie quite by chance by combining a bunch of basil leaves with frozen pineapple pieces. I always keep a bag full of fresh frozen pineapple in my freezer.
- 1/2 cup pineapple
- 1/2 of an apple or pear
- A fistful of baby spinach
- A few fresh basil leaves
- Coconut water or plain filtered water to cover
- 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds
- Blend all and enjoy.
Fresh pineapple contains an enzyme which has been said to alleviate arthritic joint pain, reduce inflammation, and inhibit tumour growth.
