Hawaiian Breeze - Tropical Smoothie Recipe with Pineapple and Spirulina

Endless beaches, surf, palm trees, exotic cocktails, juicy pineapples, and a scent of plumeria... Whether you are planning your next vacation or recalling your last, a little break from a daily routine in the middle of the week works like magic. I find that exotic concoctions work best and hope you will enjoy this one. You don't have to be by the sea to feel the breeze!


The blue-green algae spirulina makes this smoothie recipe not only healthier and more nutritious, it also gives it a sea-green color. Moreover, the ingredients interact in a very nice way and create a color pattern that almost resembles the waves in the ocean.

If you are using very ripe fruit, you do not really need any sweetener, but if you are going to add some, use liquid stevia. Stevia helps you balance the blood sugar levels and prevents insulin spikes.


Ingredients:
  • flesh of 1 ripe pineapple, roughly chopped
  • 1 ripe banana
  • freshly pressed juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbs Hawaiian spirulina powder
  • 1 cup water from young coconut
  • pinch Celtic sea salt
  • few drops of liquid stevia (optional)
  • 2-3 ice cubes


Method: 
  • Toss all the ingredients into a blender in whiz until smooth. Add a few drops of liquid stevia if you prefer your smoothie to be sweet. 
  • Pour smoothie into chilled glasses and enjoy in good company! 

Tip: For a slightly creamier version of this smoothie you can add 1/3 cup of Thai style coconut milk.
