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……….
……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.
