Krista, NutriBullet RD here. It’s come to my attention that several of you are enjoying your pineapple NutriBlasts, but unsure of whether or not to leave or toss the core. To core or not to core? That’s a good question…
And the answer is yes! I recommend leaving the core in, as it is loaded with bromelain, a mixture of enzymes that act as a anti-inflammatory, often used to help with arthritis, sinusitis, and post-surgery swelling. Along with this super-enzyme, pineapple core houses tons of other important nutrients like Vitamin C, fiber, copper, and manganese.
To show you how to include pineapple in your NutriBlasts, the team and I decided to put it to the test with my new favorite recipe - Pineapple Xpress (Not to be confused with the very popular movie). I will definitely be making this next week, as it is fast, fresh, and so delicious!
