Summer is without a doubt my favorite season! It’s difficult to say goodbye to days off work where my time is my own & I can pretty much do whatever I want & spend ample time with the pug!
This is an old picture of Stewie, from our first year together! (Look who he’s resting on… it’s Baby Minnie!)
Although I’m slowly starting to get back into my routine, I’m still hanging on to every last bit of summer. Fall doesn’t officially begin until this Friday, the 23rd (in case you didn’t know)! This smoothie I whipped up the other day was delicious & would definitely hit the spot on any warm, summer day.
Pineapple Banana Smoothie
- 1/2 frozen banana
- Frozen pineapple (I used a packet that came with the frozen vegetables I used in my Sweet & Sour Pork dinner. I’d say this was maybe 1/2 c.?)
- About 1/2 c. milk
- About 1 tbsp. Nutella
- Mini chocolate chips (optional, for topping)
- Place all ingredients in a blender & blend away! It actually took a lot of blending, then mixing, then blending again to get this smoothie to the right consistency!
I wasn’t sure how I would like the combo of banana & pineapple, but they seemed to go together pretty well. Another thing I liked about this smoothie was that the Nutella separated & became sort of frozen in tiny pieces from the frozen banana… delish!
What’s your favorite kind of smoothie? Do you enjoy smoothies year round, or “save” them primarily for the warmer months?
