Pineapple contains a bromelain, which has anti-inflammatory properties. Interestingly, the bromelain is most concentrated in the core of the pineapple. A pineapple core contains 50mg of bromelain! Go figure, the part that we throw away! So, I have been saving the cores of my pineapples in the freezer and using in smoothies and in my latest creation: Pineapple Core Ice Cubes.
Pineapple Core Ice Cubes
What you need:
- 1 pineapple
- 1 sharp knife
- Slice the pineapple as you normally would. Save the core.
- Slice the core into cubes and freeze.
- Add to water or your favorite beverages for an anti-inflammatory boost.
- Alternately, you can add the frozen pineapple core pieces to your favorite smoothies.
Bromelain also aids in egg implantation for those who are looking to get pregnant, it helps create a good uterine lining for better implantation! Just another fun pineapple fact for you!
