Having grown up in Miami, Florida (HEYYYYYYY!), I was constantly surrounded by different Latin cultures and their foods.
It was seriously the best way of growing up.
Having moved away from home, it’s one of the biggest things I miss…
That and my mom’s cooking.
College Life and all. (Mom, send me food!)
If you’ve ever been to Miami, you’ll know that we have the most amazing beaches and food you’ll ever get to try.
When I get homesick, I start to crave pineapples.
I know, it’s weird but this was my thought process.
Miami –> Beach –> Tropical –> Pineapple –>Smoothie
So good 😋
Since I’ve been trying to clean up my eating (hence my Keto Chocolate Mousse), I’ve been trying to incorporate healthy ingredients, like hemp seeds and collagen powder, into my smoothies to help me get back into shape.
This pineapple smoothie will have you craving the beach and some serious sun rays!
Vegan Pineapple Smoothie
- 1 overflowing cup of frozen pineapple
- 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
- ½ inch ginger, peeled
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut (or fresh!)
- 1 tablespoon collagen powder
- 1 date
- ¾ cup almond milk
- 4 ice cubes
- 4-5 tablespoons water (as needed)
Measure out your pineapple (and throw a little extra in there 😏).
Combine all ingredients in your Vitamix, leaving the ice last.
Pour in the almond milk of your choice.
Blend on high until combined adding water as needed.
Makes one large or two small smoothies.
But let’s be real!
It’ll probably just be one.
This smoothie is very thick. To thin it out, just add more water until it comes to the desired consistency. You may need to use a tamper.
