Happy New Year friends! I’m very excited to be visiting Delish Dish again today. I’m Zainab and I blog over at Blahnik Baker, where I share everyday classic desserts with seasonal updates and my love for shoes. There’s always something beautiful to make any occasion memorable (check out some of our recipes). I hope you can come visit!!
The beginning of a new year is always a great time to press reset on many facets of our lives, especially our diets. It’s time to take a look at what we are eating, how is it helping us live the life we want to live and what kind of changes we might be able to make to our current habits to make things even better.
Of course most people call these resolutions, intentions or goals. Whatever you call it, it is the perfect time to evaluate and act! Start with small changes like a great breakfast or snack smoothie. When I saw this Blueberry- Pineapple Smoothie in the archives of Better Homes & Gardens, I was excited to add some tropical flavors to my mornings.
I love smoothie recipes because they are always a guide and I can add in/ substitute my favorite fruits and greens. This basic recipe calls for blueberries but I substituted that for mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries). I also increased the amount of pineapples to ½ cup and removed the bananas. Adding some coconut milk instead of orange juice to the mix, it was a tropical bliss in one glass! ( I won’t tell if you don’t that there is a heaping 2 cups of spinach hiding in this glass)
I hope you try this smoothie soon – everyone in your family will enjoy it!
