Nothing beats a delicious tropical smoothie in the summer heat for breakfast or as a snack. This smoothie is full of antioxidant compounds and fiber. It also offers the very special benefits of papain (papaya) and bromelain (pineapple). These proteolytic enzymes support protein digestion along with supporting tissue repair, cardiovascular support and gut health. If you choose to add a green banana then you will be adding the health benefits of resistant starch. Get more info on the powerful health benefits of pineapples.
