Pineapple and Ginger Lassi

 

Lassi is a delicious traditional indian drink, that can be made sweet or savoury. My pineapple and ginger lassi is sweet and has wonderful anti-inflammatory powers! Pineapples contain the proteolytic enzyme bromelain. What does bromelain do? It helps you digest protein, and it reduces inflammation amongst other things. Ginger, also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, joins in the fight and gives this lassi a zing! Be sure to include the core of the pineapple, as that is where the good stuff lives. Enjoy this refreshing summery drink!
