Kimberly Snyder Shares Her Tropical Smoothie Recipe Exclusively with You

“Hi, I’m Kimberly Snyder and I am so excited to share one of my favorite vegan smoothie recipes with The Beet. Smoothies are a great way to fill up on healthy and detoxifying fruits and veggies- especially when those afternoon cravings hit you the most. This smoothie includes pineapple which has the amazing compound of bromelain that helps promote optimal digestion and is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. This smoothie also has my favorite beauty cleansing fruit, coconuts. Harmless Harvest has an amazing dairy-free, plant-based coconut yogurt made with hand-scooped organic coconut meat which is packed with key nutrients like potassium, magnesium, and calcium. This high potassium fruit helps regulate fluid levels inside cells and balance the high amount of puffiness that may come from things like too much sodium. Hope you enjoy!”
