Green Pineapple Paradise Smoothie

Green Pineapple Paradise Smoothie

I feel like every year when the seasons change, I get into a mood.

It’s like a clockwork.

Every year in December, I start dreading the upcoming winter and I get very summersick.

The thing is, I adore sunshine and warm weather and I absolutely hate being boxed in in my house all through the Scottish winter (which can be very long and dreadful!).

I just feel so much better when I spend time outdoors, especially when it’s sunny.

Now, since I don’t have a magic wand in my pocket to help me switch out the season into summer all year long, I’ve been trying out various ways to make myself feel better during the winter.

One of them is to take care of my house and make it feel extra special during the cold season as I’m obviously spending the majority of my time indoors.

The other thing that’s been really helpful is to make my smoothies taste very fresh, summery, and tropical.

It may be cold and dreary outside, but at least my glass is filled with tropical flavors and while I’m drinking my smoothie, I can imagine myself being on a paradise island…

I know it may sound silly, but it actually works!

Just try it out.

This Green Pineapple Paradise Smoothie recipe is the perfect example and I’ve been drinking it all throughout December.

Green Pineapple Paradise Smoothie Recipe Card

Limited Time Blender Special Offer

Thinking of treating yourself to a new blender?  I recommend you get a high speed blender for making Green Thickies as it will turn out incredibly smooth and free from green chunks!  It is also so much faster than using a standard blender.

The blender I recommend and love is a Blendtec as you can just press the button and it performs the magic.  You don’t have to do anything!  (plus you can make your own healthy nut butters and frozen fruit ice cream which kids and adults adore).

The only thing about high speed blenders is they are expensive.  I truly believe they are worth the investment and the best thing I ever bought as I use it so often.  

But if you don’t want to splash out on a brand new high speed blender right now, a good alternative is to get yourself a refurbished blender because they are like new – but a lot more affordable.

Blendtec’s latest discount on refurbished blenders is now live!  This month, the following deal is available:

30% off the price of refurbished blenders.  These blenders are certified refurbished which means they have passed full inspection and meet the stringent standards that Blendtec hold for their machines.  With a full 7-year warranty, these discounted reconditioned blenders will perform and delight for many years to come!
