Summer of Smoothies (week 9): Pineapple Smoothie

Pineapple Smoothie | Very Culinary

I’ll always remember a few things about meeting Paul – he wore these super cute tennis shoes, could recite movie lines like nobody’s business, loved dill pickle potato chips more than life itself, and could eat a pineapple like it was the last one ever to be grown on earth.

Not much has changed 10 years later. 

I never used to buy pineapple that much. I think I always had it in my head that it’s just too much of a pain to deal with. And too expensive to buy already cut up. Until the OXO ratcheting pineapple slicer came into my life.

Now I buy it all the time. It’s one of my favorite fruits to include in recipes as seen in my Grilled Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches, Hawaiian Pork SlidersThai Chicken Curry Wraps, Pineapple and Coconut Rice, Pineapple Nilla Dip, and …there’s just so many.

But I’ve also loved cutting it up and freezing the pieces for smoothies this summer.

Seriously, that oxo pineapple cutter is a godsend! i never ate pineapple before it but now…overload.

Hopefully that overload will be in smoothie form this week!

Mmmm I love this combination! I’ve never heard of dill pickle potato chips, but I would probably like them as well!

The ratcheting tool is awesome. Now you can use the empty pineapple “shell” and make yourself a tropical drink.

This looks like another simple smoothie to add to my “to try” list and that OXO ratcheting pineapple slicer looks like a good kitchen tool. I can’t remember seeing it before.
