My local store has had pineapples in stock for a few weeks, not normal fare in this area, but they’ve been sweet, juicy and delicious and we’ve been enjoying them – a lot! So when I saw this combo of pineapple and blueberry I had to try it. Result? Dreaming I’d been transported to a sunny tropical beach somewhere, as Gaby at WhatsGabyCooking said.
There are great health benefits from pineapple, mainly due to the bromelain which offers anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and digestive benefits, and may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration. And that’s only the pineapple. Add to that the blueberries, banana and other ingredients and you’ve got a powerfully healthy drink.
Gaby is excited about her smoothie, too. She says …
This Pineapple Blueberry Smoothie is one of my latest and greatest fresh fruit inventions. It’s tropical and makes you want to be on a beach with your toes in the sand and getting a tan. Because doesn’t that just sound awesome. Minus the fact that I’m so ghostly pale right now I would be terrified to see myself in a bkini, I think being on a beach sounds kinda perfect. Hawaii would be nice. But I’d settle for a little weekend jaunt to Cabo. Or maybe somewhere in the Caribeean. But hey, I’m not picky. Give me a beach and some sunshine and I’ll be a happy camper.
