Summertime Smoothie

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

Ingredients:

  • 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)

Directions:

  • 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!

 Yes, our chairs are dirty!

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?

    I stopped buying Nutella a while ago because I was downing the jars WAY too fast haha. Actually, now I’m just downing jars of Sunbutter, so I might have to reevaluate that decision…

    Anyway, this smoothie looks DELICIOUS. If I end up buying Nutella, I know what I’m doing with it ;)

    The way that Nutella broke up sounds HEAVENLY! ….I like any smoothie, I just wish the warm weather would come back so I could truly enjoy the coolness of the drink! –Where are you summer? COME BACK!!!!

    PS-I’ve been having issues posting replies to your site since you switched over. Is anyone else having these issues?

      I had to set my comments to be moderated by me because I was getting a ton of spam. Once I approved one of your comments, it should have gone through without a problem. Now, I just installed a new plug-in to hopefully help with the spam, but I have to “re-approve” everyone again, so that might have been why you got an error.

      Does it happen every time you try to post a reply? Or was it just a few times?

        I get an error message every time I try to post. I guess it’s working but it doesn’t say ‘waiting moderation’ or anything. It just says error & it won’t recognize me….. but then it does. I didn’t know what it’s deal was.—I realize that probably doesn’t make any sense but that’s what is going on HA! ;)
