Pineapple Mint Smoothie
No matter the season or the weather, this smoothie is sure to add a little brightness to your day! Loaded with light and refreshing flavours this Pineapple Mint Smoothie is a delicious treat.
Truth be told, I didn’t know what to call this smoothie. There are so many delicious ingredients in this drink it was hard to choose which ones to feature. Tropical Ginger & Mint Smoothie? Sweet Ginger & Mint Smoothie? Minted Lime and Pineapple Smoothie? The options were endless, but I knew that Pineapple Ginger Lime and Mint Smoothie was just a little too long.
The recipe for this smoothie came out of a partnership with my friends at Pure Kitchen Ottawa, as they featured me as one of their smoothies of the month and this was the recipe we created! It took a little while to get to the right combination of flavours, we toyed around with spinach and banana, but the winner ended up being the recipe below. Not only does it taste delicious, but the ingredients in this smoothie make it incredibly nutritious as it is great for digestive health too! Pineapple is a known digestive aid as it is rich in an enzyme called bromelain, while ginger and mint are both known to be natural digestive aids and natural remedies to reduce bloating. So, not only is this Pineapple Mint Smoothie delicious, but it is a little tummy-tamer too, and I know everyone can be a fan of that.
I’ve suggested frozen pineapple to keep the smoothie nice and cold, but you could also use fresh and just add a little ice. And although not an official ingredient, I’m sure you could a little tequila to the mix for a fun summer drink at your next party too.
