There are so many reasons to love smoothies, but one of the things I love most is that depending on what’s in your fridge, you can have one that looks and tastes different each time. On this particular day, I had a piece of leftover pineapple from when I made my Tropical Pineapple Orange Mango Juice and a package of blueberries I couldn’t say no to at the store. So, there it was, those would be two of the ingredients that would go into making my next smoothie creation: A Blueberry Pineapple Smoothie.
The name of this recipe (or even the pictures! I had no more pineapple left!) doesn’t even come close to letting you know what actually makes up this smoothie. It’s filled with more than just blueberries and pineapple. It contains quite a few nutritious ingredients, (but don’t let that statement scare you off because it’s delicious! And look at that colour!).
If you’ve tried any of my other smoothies, you’ll know that there are some ingredients I carry over from one to the other. Banana, avocado, spinach, hemp hearts, chia seeds…they all make regular appearances. When I made my blueberry pineapple smoothie, I also threw in a piece of fresh ginger like I did with my Berry Beet Ginger Smoothie. I like the taste fresh ginger adds, but as noted in the recipe, it’s optional. Whether you want that little zing ginger will give you is for you to decide, but if you don’t add it, know that the smoothie will be just as good!
And feel free to use fresh or frozen blueberries and pineapple if you can’t find them fresh where you are or because of the time of year. It will be just as good!
I saw frozen avocado chunks at my grocery store not long ago, it’s a new product but I have never tried it before. Have you? I didn’t even know you could buy frozen avocado! If it’s something you buy, I’m sure it would work well in this smoothie too. Note that if you do use frozen ingredients, the finished smoothie will be a little thicker than if using the fresh stuff. If you want to thin it out, just add a little more liquid.
And before you check out the recipe, if you like having smoothies for breakfast or for an afternoon snack as much as I do, be sure to check out my other smoothie recipes!
