Refreshing Pineapple Smoothie

One day this week I was hungry ALL DAY LONG. I was actually getting sick of eating so I told my husband that I wish I could just drink food. I was literally sick of finding snacks to consume and just wanted a magic pill to fill me up.

Well, I didn’t drink my food that day. I ate regular meals and snacks, even if sick of them. And I think I was still hungry when I went to bed that night, but had given up so fell asleep to tummy growls.

What was the deal? Well, I have a current condition that I am not ready to share on the blog yet that keeps me hungry A LOT. So, it is time to mix things up and find fill-me-up drinks too.

Heyyyyyy smoothie! You’re looking pretty fine right now.

Yes, bring on the smoothie recipes. I have been going Pinterest crazy a bit lately to find some good ones. In fact, I think I shared a few faves on a guest post for Nature’s Bakery that should be up on their site soon. I haven’t tried them all, but it is my goal to!

Today I experimented with a refreshing pineapple smoothie! I rarely measure things, but here is what I grabbed out of the pantry and fridge:

  • Frozen pineapple
  • Frozen spinach
  • Milk
  • pHenOH 7.4
  • Chia Seeds
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Pineapple Juice
  • Mint Leaves
  • Sprinkle of Ginger, Cinnamon, & Cardamom

It is SOOOOOOOO GOOD! Definitely up my alley, but I am in love with mint and it definitely has a hint of it. If you are up for a similar smoothie, keep in mind you can take some of the ingredients off and it’d still taste the same I bet (like the pHenOH 7.4 since I doubt many peeps have this just laying around). Also, I start with just a little of the liquids and add more in if it is needed after I blend. I also use just a tad of spinach, because I am not into the very green-tasting smoothies.

I am joining in with the Fit Dish link up today with The Fit Switch and Jill Conyers. Do you like smoothies? If so, what is your favorite ingredient to add into smoothies?

    I guessed it! So so excited for you Bri. Pineapple is one of my favorite smoothie add ins and I always add Skoop B-Strong vanilla protein powder. Congratulations to you and your husband <3

    I added pineapple to my smoothie this week too! I grew mine in the yard so extra fresh! 🙂 I bet that condition of yours improves in another 7 months or so 🙂 enjoy!
