Nothing says summer like a tropical drink! It’s August and I know summer is going strong back in west Texas, but here in Germany, it seems to have already left. I actually don’t like the summer heat unless I’m by the beach, fall weather is what I prefer. Though I do love the produce that summer gives: all of those delicious juicy stone fruits and watery melons. I also love the fruity drinks that are synonymous with summer. This pineapple smoothie doesn’t have to be just for summer, it can be for whenever you have a need for a cold delicious drink.
This smoothie is easy to put together and only has four ingredients! You can always toss in a couple of handfuls of spinach for some extra greens. Spinach doesn’t change the taste of a smoothie as much as kale does. Kale would also be a great choice, but if you’re new to adding greens to smoothies you might want to start off with a handful of spinach first.
It’s tasty and refreshing for those hot summer days (or just because it sounds good). I love smoothies, they’re a nice sweet treat for afternoons. There are no refined sugars in this tropical drink, it’s just sweetened with pineapple and ripe banana. So blend up a smoothie, sit back and pretend you’re relaxing at the beach or anywhere!Print
