Pineapple Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are such a nice way to present your fruit differently, and it makes it easier to serve your kids a healthy snack without any additives. This tropical bowl is a real treat!

The toppings are the best part, allowing you to add healthful nutrients and superfoods to your day and create an attractive breakfast or mid-morning snack. Top with some nuts for extra protein, or if making it for small kids you can blend the nuts along with the other ingredients, to avoid chocking.

Pineapple is quite a fascinating yet nutritious fruit, as it’s a compound fruit composed of many flowers whose individual fruitlets are fused together around a central core. Each fruitlet has an ‘eye’ which is the rough spiny marking on the fruit’s surface. Pineapples contain high amounts of vitamin C and manganese. Manganese is an important mineral as it plays a role in the formation of bones, connective tissues, blood-clotting factors and sex hormones, and also is involved in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption and blood sugar regulation.

Cleaning and cutting a pineapple can be a bit of a chore, and to make it easier and to enjoy pineapple throughout the year, just keep some EuroBerry frozen pineapple pieces in your freezer.
