This smoothie is like dreaming about summer. Light, creamy, refreshing. It can also remind you of melted ice cream. Pineapple stimulates creation of your digestive enzymes, cucumber and celery restore healthy electrolytes in your body giving you a boost in the mid-afternoon or after a work out. Definitely one of my favourites when I feel like having a cuddle. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 10 min

Cooking Time:

Serves 1 - 2

Ingredients

  • 2 cups filled with pineapple chunks (defrosted or use half of a large pineapple)
  • 0.5 cucumber

 

  • 2 medium celery stalks cut into pieces (this will make it easier to blend and eliminate any possible celery strings)

Instructions

Put pineapple pieces, cucumber and celery into a high speed blender and process until smooth and creamy.

Serve in your favourite jar topped with more pineapple pieces and pieces of cucumber for bit more freshness if you wish.

 

Note: If using fresh pineapple make sure it’s ripe for deep sweet flavour. The skin of pineapple should be yellow/brown, not green.
