'It's Spring' Pineapple Maple Smoothie – Lakanto Australia
by Holly @ Paradise Pantry

This vibrant refreshing smoothie is perfect to welcome the warmer weather. Pineapple and maple combine to form the perfect amount of sweetness yet with 53% less sugar than if made with traditional maple syrup. 

Plus, pineapple is rich in vitamin C and the enzyme, bromelain, so when paired with the water kefir and collagen it makes this a powerhouse of a drink to support your gut health, skin and hair. 

Best served cold, poolside with a decent drizzle of syrup on top.
