This shake is perfect as a breakfast option or a postworkout recovery meal. Pineapple juice delivers bromelain, a digestive enzyme that helps break down protein and acts as an anti-inflammatory. And milk-derived whey protein contains leucine, an amino acid that helps your body preserve calorie-burning muscle while dieting. Cherries and pineapples contribute to this shake’s sky-high Vitamin C content (85 percent of your daily value). Research has suggested that there is a chemical in body cells that mobilizes Vitamin C to burn fat at a faster rate.
