Kiwi & Pineapple Water for Healthy Skin

juice kiwi pineapple

Lately, I’ve been trying to incorporate a lot more fruit and veggies into my diet, eliminate processed foods as much as I could and observe effects those changes may have on my skin. I am also drinking a lot more water, which can get dull sometimes, so I decided to try something else. So simple and it truly tastes heavenly.

You will need:

-two kiwis, peeled

-few pieces of fresh cut pineapple ( about two rings)

-filtered water

-ice

-agave nectar (optional)

– blender

First thing that I do is to blend my fruit together; I blend until a smooth “paste” forms. I use my tiny hand blender, I find it much convenient than the regular blender, it’s super quick to clean and easy to use.

Then all I do is add in my filtered/bottled water to the fruit paste and ice, mixing everything together until it’s well combined.

Sometimes I also use about two spoons of organic blue agave nectar, to add a little sweetness. I always store it in the fridge and drink it cold, it tastes a lot better when it’s chilled. It’s a delicious way to stay hydrated, especially during hot summer days.

And why is kiwifruit and pineapple so good for the skin?

Other than containing more vitamin C than pretty much any other fruit, Kiwifruit contains lots of antioxidants and dietary fiber as well as vitamin E, which all play a role in slowing the aging process of the skin.

Pineapple has also lots of benefits as it contains vitamin C (once again), enzymes, calcium and it also has anti-inflammatory properties. When I was younger I used to absolutely hate the taste of pineapple, when it was added to cakes or cookies, or salads, I couldn’t even look at it. As it turns out, the pineapple that I was used to, usually came from a can, it was saggy and just gross. Once I tried a fresh pineapple without all that extra sugar, I loved it so much; it’s now my favorite fruit!
