Smoothie Saturday #7 - Raspberry, Pineapple & Vanilla

Smoothie Saturday #7 - Raspberry, Pineapple & Vanilla

A while ago I bought - The "NutriBullet". Since then I have been creating many smoothie creations.

Today is the seventh "Smoothie Saturday" where I will share one of my smoothie experimentation.

In this recipe the important ingredient is the Pineapple.

Pineapple -  is a very good source of vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.  In my opinion the healthiest component of the pineapple is "Bromelain" which is an enzyme that aids your digestion and also helps prevent & relieve any inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, acute sinusitis and gout.  (again - I'm not a doctor - please see my "disclaimer" at the bottom of this post).

RaspPineVan Smoothie, by Angie Ouellette-Tower for godsgrowinggarden.com

1/3 banana (peeled)
1/4 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup pineapple chunks (see above "link" on how to cut a whole pineapple)
1 tablespoons walnuts
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup kefir (or yogurt)
1/4 cup water (or more if it is too thick)

Begin with the smaller "NutriBullet" container and use the "nut & seed" blade to blend & chop the walnuts & flax seeds. Now place the remaining ingredients (including the processed seeds & nuts from the first step) into the larger "NutriBullet" container and use the "smoothie" blade. Blend for about 30 seconds (or until fully blended).
ENJOY!!
IMPORTANT: All of my smoothie recipes on this blog are measured for the "NutriBullet" and are a single serving - if you have a different kind of blender that has a larger capacity then you may increase the amount of ingredients according to your desired smoothie needs. The ingredients in this recipe measure close to the max line of the NutriBullet.

  2. This sounds like one I'd really like. I have to tell you though that I am very lazy with my smoothies. Yesterday I put plain yogurt in a glass, poured in some mango juice, stirred. Not quite as healthy as yours!

  7. Yum sounds delicous, will have to try his one out. I've been drinking lots of breakfast smoothies too and just love them. Such a great way to start the day. My favourite at the moment is Banana, almonds and hazelnut milk with some honey - simple and delicious!

  8. I am such a raspberry junkie! Never thought of putting pineapple with them though. I think I might just have to try this combination out as it sounds wonderful!
