Pineapple Pick Me Up

I love smoothies. They are fast, easy, and you can get as creative or “un”-creative as you like. You can make them healthy or make them more like a dessert or milk shake. I’m fighting off a cold and for some reason, when I have a cold I crave citrus. Maybe it’s the vitamin C or maybe it’s because citrus smoothies are easy. Either way, this one hit the spot and gave me some added energy to tackle another “to do” list for the day.

Pineapple Pick Me Up Smoothie

*Makes 2 –  16 ounce smoothies

About 2 1/2 Cups Fresh Pineapple, diced

About 1/3 Cup Sweetened Coconut

About 1/3 Cup Toasted Pecans

About 1 1/2 Cups Unsweetened Almond Milk

Place all ingredients in a Vita Mix or heavy-duty blender and blend until smooth.

  1. I, too, love smoothies but with our temps spiraling downward, I tend to avoid them this time of year. Even so, if I need a breath of Summer, I’ll make one — and yours here would be perfect — close my eyes, and pretend that it’s July for a few minutes.


  2. Hi April,
    I love your recipes! The bread looks wonderful and the Pineapple smoothie is making me hungry! I love the pictures of your new stove. I bet you are happy to have the house back to normal.
