In anticipation of the spring weather that doesn't seem to be coming around here, I have been consuming a lot of morning smoothies. Generally, I use whatever fruit I have in the fridge or freezer on any given day.
I happened to have some pineapple one day and I thought it might add a nice tropical touch to my smoothie.
I threw about five chunks in a Magic Bullet cup and added a banana, a handful of frozen strawberries, half of an apple and some orange juice.
I wanted to add greens too, but I had to blend first, because I had overfilled the cup some.
In went a handful of baby spinach.
Another brief blend and breakfast was ready. You can see it's kind of a semi-green smoothie. I like the fruit to be the overwhelming taste, rather than veggies. This blend is nutritious but also tasty!
It calls for half an apple, because I like to give the other half to Jolene the beagle mix. She loves fruit...or any food at all for that matter.
