Probably because of all of the holiday excess, I get into a frugal mood out of the blue. After coring a particularly delicious pineapple, I wondered. What could I do with the fiber-y core. First thought, it’s smoothie time. The fiber-y bits in the resulting smoothie were barely noticeable.
Pineapple Banana Smoothie
1 big wedge of pineapple, approximately 1/2 heaping cup
(or, if you have an especially ripe and delicious pineapple core)
1 large banana
1 cup ice
splash of orange juice
juice of 1/2 a lime
pineapple to garnish, if desired
Place all ingredients into a powerful blender. Liquify. Pour into your glass of choice. Garnish, if you desire to do so.
Cheers! …Breakfast style!
P.S. If you choose to garnish with a ring of pineapple, be careful to hook the pineapple over the rim of your glass better than I did. I had to fish out the wet, sticky wedge at the end of my smoothie meal. Does that constitute playing with your food?
