Tropical Smoothie

I’m obsessed with pineapples… and smoothies.

I’m sure you can relate to being into a certain food.  What’s your latest food obsession?  Easter candy, perhaps?  You know who you are.  😉  That’s even more reason to hop on the smoothie bandwagon if you haven’t already.

Smoothies are where it’s at for me right now.  I enjoy them for breakfast or snack.  Heck, I’ll even enjoy one for dessert, sometimes, if there isn’t something more desserty around.  It’s sort of like a sorbet… sort of… work with me here.  😉

Since my blog represents what’s going on in my life, I’m going to share another awesome recipe with you even though I posted one just a couple of weeks ago.  If you’ve seen that Pineapple Coconut Smoothie, no, it’s not the same as this one.  I can see why you might think that since they both have pineapple in them and they both have a tropical essence to them.

I usually make up my own concoction.  Throw some fruit and yogurt in a blender… wammo blammo… smoothie.  I share the awesome creations with you because that’s how I roll.  🙂

Anyway, I was looking online for some inspiration because I wanted a new smoothie combo and I found this tropical smoothie recipe.  There are a bazillion smoothie recipes out there of the “tropical” variety.  I’ve not tried them all (duh) but I can say that this one qualifies.  All of the flavors just work here.  Plus, it’s mad simple to whip up.

I made this smoothie after my kick boxing class on Saturday morning.  Yes, I do kick boxing.  Hiyah!  I started the class a couple of years ago.  I LOVE the workout and I’ve made some great friends too.

I go to my kickboxing class four times a week.  One or two other days during the week I’ll fill in with a variety of other workouts.  Sometimes I’ll follow a DVD workout at home.  I love Bob Harper’s workouts.  Other days I like to go for a run in my neighborhood, especially now that it’s getting warmer out.  Well, it’s more like I jog?  Fast walk?  I dunno, something that resembles someone trying to run.

  6. This smoothie looks fantastic, Tina! I think I’m hooked on strawberries right now, but I could definitely let pineapple slide in, too. Love the pretty colors!
