Pineapple Mint Smoothie


This is my absolute favorite smoothie. I rarely choose favorites among my dishes, because variety is the most appealing aspect of cooking to me, however, I’ve perfected this smoothie over years of smoothie making and I LOVE it. It’s the one I come back to again and again. It’s refreshing, nourishing, and best of all, energizing.

  • I have the smoothie pictured with various toppings, but this one is fabulous all by itself. I most often pour this smoothie in a glass and drink it straight.
