SIMPLE IS BETTER!
This recipe is a reminder that there is beauty in the simple things as well! It is also an idea of how to use the pineapple that my daughter insisted in buying!
It’s that time of year, when you especially want some ice cream! I have one for you today that I am thrilled to share!! You’ll be feeling so much lighter and fuller with my Creamy Pineapple Ice Cream Recipe.
And we don’t want to succumb to the sugar cones stacked high with gob-full of colorful dripping ice cream and gooey bits of caramel and chocolate, BUT we do want an amazing replacement.
We will be avoiding all that dairy and processed sugar that only causes bloating, acne and digestive issues. Instead, opting for beauty foods that will pack your gut with nutrition and make the digestive process a breeze! And it’s delish, which is obviously key (and the point!) when it comes to ice cream.
Beauty Food: Pineapple
I think pineapples are one of the best fruits ever! A delicious tropical fruit that also has amazing beauty and health benefits—including improving digestion, helping shed weight, improve the immune system and increase circulation (to name just a few). Too bad we don’t have any Cypriot pineapples available!
Pineapple also hydrates and is packed with bromelain—a special compound that helps to promote optimal digestion—which is key for truly supporting you in expressing your natural beauty.
Pineapple’s bromelain enzyme also helps in improving circulation and reducing mucus (key components to ongoing cleansing and detoxification), keeping your skin soft and healthy.
Pineapple is an excellent source of the trace mineral manganese (an essential co-factor in a number of enzymes important in energy production and antioxidant defenses). It is also a good source of thiamin—a B vitamin that acts as a co-factor in enzymatic reactions— and central to energy production.
This fruit also helps the body naturally detoxify itself and in the process, lose weight. The bromelain enzyme it contains is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce the onset of aging, pain and even disease.
