Pineapple Sunshine Water Kefir Smoothie Recipe
Pineapple is loaded with vitamin C and bromelain, which is an enzyme that helps improve digestion, and also has anti-inflammatory effects. Pineapples are also fairly rich in manganese, B vitamins, folate and fibre, making the pairing with water kefir a supercharged nutritional smoothie! Pineapple adds a burst of flavour. Turmeric is best known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and the high concentrations of curcumin (which gives turmeric its beautiful, golden color), can also help decrease muscle pain after exercise.
