Pineapple Ginger Smoothie

 

Since it is only 107 degrees outside on this Southern August Sunday in Mississippi…  I think it is time for something cold and refreshing.  And being that my sweet husband just bought me the Ninja blender yesterday for no apparent reason…  I think I’ll make a smoothie….  I am going to enter a smoothie contest later this month so he and I have been tossing around some ideas about some different flavor combinations that sound appealing to us.  Pineapple was one of the first flavors that I thought of.  When I make sweet and sour sauce for egg rolls, I used fresh pineapple along with fresh ginger.  I thought this was a good start for a smoothie.  Here is what I came up with…

Ingredients List:

2 1/2 cups fresh pineapple chunks (cut it up before you measure it)

1/2 cup Dole 100% pineapple juice

6 slices of fresh ginger, peeled (my node was about 1” in diameter)

12 -15 fresh cilantro leaves

3 small packets Splenda

15 cubes of ice

 

Place all ingredients in a blender.  Blend on high until all is blended.  Pour into a glass and cool off with a refreshing smoothie!

Hint:  To make it an adult beverage, a splash of vodka would be nice!!!  I will leave the amount to add up to you.

 Enjoy
