Pineapple, Carrot and Walnut Smoothie

This IS seriously happening….brace yourself, this is a salad smoothie !!!

I had bought this pineapple on the hopes of making a pineapple smoothie of sorts. My original idea was to concoct a smoothie from a salad my mom used to make with pineapple.  (Does that sound weird or what?….salad….and smoothie) So anyway, I hack this pineapple up into chunks,  and bomb it into the blender, add the frozen banana, then realise, I didn’t have lactose free yoghurt…… bummer,  but carried on thinking now of the salad ingredients……added the carrot, and then……..drum roll please……….

WALNUTS

……but me being me, ended up not thinking with all my excitement and landed up emptying the entire bowl of walnuts into my previously perfect smoothie….

Result?   Full Blown Walnut Smoothie !!!!  Not good, well, not the way I wanted it to go. So, hubby had Full Blown Walnut Smoothie for breakie today. You talk about a nut boost !

But, now for the real deal…..and if I say so myself, this was Deeliciousssss.

  1. Walnuts is a great addition. I love that. My hubby and I decided to swtich out our evening meals for smoothies a few nights a week, so your timing is perfect, Lynne. I have to search your site for more smoothy ideas. Love this one! Thanks 🙂

      • Hahahaha Diana 🙂 That is something I would do 🙂 Now, that delicious Cheese and Bacon fondue is only for the eye to see, and all the divine, scrumptious cheese is only to be imagined 🙂 But, now on the other side of the scale I do have some really good, healthy smoothies (under the breakfast section, Blueberry, Spinach and Quinoa Smoothie Bowl, Orange, Papaya, Butternut and Chai (I know you aren’t keen on the papaya, but you can use mango or another fruit), and then there is the Beetroot and Berry Smoothie) Hope you find something and enjoy….:-)

      • I remembered some smoothies but didn’t think to look under breakfast. I’m going right there and making a shopping list! I knew you’d have something healthy and delicious to start us off on our plan. Thanks!
