Sweet Patootie, this one’s fruity

February 22, 2013

In my little world of smoothie-making, I’ve come up with some pretty weird combinations lately that aren’t likely to ever be found in a book. Yesterday’s Black Beauty is a perfect example (Eww, who wants to drink a black smoothie???). So, today, I decided to make a plain ‘ol traditional smoothie, and just give it a weird name.

Here’s the recipe:

  •  juice from 3 small to medium-size oranges
  •  about 4-5 chunks frozen pineapple
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • handful of cashews
  • 1/4 of water or more if needed

I decided to have this after a high-intensity cardio workout, thus the cashews for a little bit of protein for recovery. My stomach has also been bothering me lately (possibly the introduction of a few new ingredients in my diet), and so I used pineapple. Pineapple and papaya are supposed to be really good for stomach issues. Of course, the acidic berries and orange juice may override any positive effects from the pineapple. We’ll see! Nevertheless, this drink was perfect!
