Pineapple-Blueberry Smoothie

Pin It

Here I go talking about the weather again, but dang... it's HOT!  Like the iced latte, starting out with a cool beverage on mornings like this certainly helps in the effort to beat the heat.  Simple and quick to prepare, portable, healthy and very tasty---this smoothie has everything you want in a summer breakfast.

Pineapple is a year round fruit in our house.  In the summer I like to pair it with the sweet blue jewels of summer.  It might seem like a strange pairing, but it really works.  I use my standard smoothie formula, but use pineapple and blueberries for the fruit.  What really makes this smoothie stand out is the coconut water.  I don't know if I am fully convinced of all the health benefits of coconut water, but I do know that it helps make for a tasty beverage first thing in the morning.  You can almost feel the tropical island breeze off the water instead of the hot wind off the pavement.

  1. I love pineapple and blueberries so this sounds perfect!

  2. Wow! This looks and sounds absolutely delicious! I'm not familiar with coconut water. Is it easily available? Tks!

  3. Nicole, that is one of my favorite combinations! :)

  4. Nicole, Thanks for the response. I'll try the coconut water if I can find it. If not, I'll try one of the other juices!

    1. Sorry original comment about where to find coconut water was accidentally deleted, but... I can find it easily in the juice and water aisle at my market. If it is not available, you can use other fruit juices, like orange, pineapple, or apple.

  5. What a gorgeous smoothie! Love that color :) And pineapple and blueberries go amazing well together!

  6. Yum, making this one tonight.
