Spicy Goddess Smoothie

May 13, 2020 | Breakfast, Snack

The weather is finally improving! I love the summer and I’m certainly looking forward to it. After a long winter and what feels like an eternity indoors I’m starting to think about caring for my skin a bit more with foods rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties – enter my Spicy Goddess Smoothie! 

With refreshing pineapple and a kick of cayenne, you’ll almost feel like you’re already at the beach! Haha. 

This is a great option as a meal replacement but I usually enjoy it as snack, just portion it into two servings instead of one. This will hold in the fridge for about 2 days. 

Health stats: 

Bromelain – an enzyme found in pineapple known for anti-inflammatory properties & aids in digestion. 

Kale is a spectacular source of vitamin K, a key nutrient for helping regulate the body’s inflammatory process.

Low fat Greek yogurt. Excellent source of protein, helps keep you fuller, longer 

Cayenne pepper contains the active compound Capsaicin (gives peppers heat), which can help boost metabolism.
