with NutriBullet RD
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 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!
Here’s what you need:
- Kale (fill tall cup to 50%)
- 1 banana
- 16 almonds (this is an EXACT science, ok?)
- chia seeds (up to a tablespoon)
- a dash of cinnamon
- 2 large pineapple chunks (including core!)
- filtered water (to the max line)
All it takes is a quick spin with the extractor blade, and the Pineapple Xpress is off! Let me know what you think of the recipe, and if you have any other questions. The team and I will do our best to address them in our next blog posts :).

Have a great weekend, everyone!
