The ingredient: pineapple
A little bit of pineapple goes a long way—in terms of transporting you back to that Hawaiian vacation you took a couple of years ago, when you seriously considered moving to the islands and living the barefoot freelance life. (Sigh, memories.) And pineapples make it easy to replicate those piña coladas on the beach—in a super healthy way—by blending up a smoothie with coconut water (and mangos and whatever else you think of throwing in, since it’s an amazing mixer).
What’s in it
The juicy, hot-weather treat is also a source of magnesium, a mineral that’s become a bit of a wellness star in recent years because experts say most of us don’t get enough of it. Without sufficient levels of magnesium, your sleep can suffer, your digestion can get sluggish, and even your PMS can be more painful.
Why it’s trending
For the past couple of years, pineapples have been everywhere (and not just on your table) as the design world went a little gaga for the fruit, emblazoning them on everything from cute tees to dresses to wallpaper. Think of the bright yellow fruit as the ultimate symbol of laid-back leisure—and sweet, ready-to-eat summer sunshine.
