This is the first post about “food” here, but I am excited to add an “Eat it” category to the blog! Food we grow is a plant…am I right?
- 1 cup Almond Milk (can substitute coconut milk, cows milk, etc.)
- 1 cup chopped pineapple (fresh or canned)
- 1 cup (or a handful) or spinach
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 avocado
- 5-6 fresh basil leaves
- 1/4 cup crushed ice.
The picture does not show the banana because I didn’t intend on adding it. My daughter decided not to finish eating hers, so I thought, well…here ya go smoothie, and tossed it in last minute! I’m glad I did.
Just add ingredients to blender, I use this one, and blend until smooth and creamy. YUM!
For this particular smoothie fresh pineapple was used. I cut it up the old fashioned way using a knife, but there are cook peelers you can use too. (Like this one).
If using canned, about a tablespoon of juice from the can adds some great flavor too.
My two oldest kids did not like it much, but the two that are three & under, loved it! In fact, they drank so much of it, I hardly enjoyed any myself.
Top the smoothie with a pineapple chunk and basil leaf for a professional feel, and enjoy!
Have you ever used basil in a smoothie before?
