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.
