I know it is not Friday but Wednesday is just as good for smoothies, right? Well, the reason is that I do have a St. Patrick’s Day post planned for Friday. You don’t want to miss that recipe because it is simple yet so delicious! As for this Pineapple Banana Smoothie, it too is equally delicious and very refreshing!
You may have noticed that I have been using almond milk as a base for my smoothies lately. I find that it works well with most fruits and is pretty neutral in taste. I am a little more cautious with regular cow’s milk as it can sometimes cause a tummy reaction for me when mixed with certain fruits. So far, almond milk seems to be fine and so I am sticking with it.
I had some frozen chunks of pineapples left in the freezer which I wanted to use up. Mixing it with banana and almond milk makes it a little “milder” and easier on the palate, especially in the mornings. Actually I really like the way it turned out. It was a good pick-me-up for the morning that is refreshingly tangy but not overly so. Love the color too!
- 1 cup (200g) pineapple, cut into chunks
- 1 banana, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 cup (240ml) almond milk
- Combine pineapple, banana, and almond milk in a blender. Blend until smooth. Remove and serve immediately.
Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day!
