I’ll tell you what, …there’s nothing that will put you in a relaxed, summery state of mind quite like this, perhaps surprising, combination–
—which is sweet and tart and fresh and bright…
- 1/3 cup fresh pineapple
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
- 1 scoop vanilla Growing Naturals pea protein
- ice, to preference
- 1 Tbsp. fresh cilantro
- Combine all ingredients in a blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Consume with abandon.
While mint, and heck, even basil, might seem like obvious herb additions to a sweet smoothie, I’m not sure cilantro gets to share sugar’s spotlight very often. So, strange? Maybe. But good? BETTER than good.
