This new trick has become a staple for me on the road this summer. We are traveling for five weeks and have a very small fridge with a tiny freezer shelf. This makes it very hard to have all my favorite frozen fruit on hand. Green smoothies are a staple in my life so I needed a solution. I was taught this fun trick by my cousin who is a college student. She used this because it is a lot cheaper. This is perfect for budget minded folks:
YEP~ Canned pineapple!! We all know fresh it always BEST, but for those moments when you just need the pineapple to combat the bitterness of the 1/2 bunch of kale in your smoothie, this works perfect!
1 8 ounce can crushed pineapple (as pictured above)
1 cup blueberries
about 7-9 large strawberries
1/2 bunch kale
water and fax seeds.
YUM! Breakfast of champions!
Hope you are enjoying your summer!
