Also in singing, especially when singing is not necessarily prescribed.

This energizing Matcha Pineapple Smoothie is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Pineapple, I’m discovering is perfect in smoothies.  Not only do they add a mouthwatering tropical sweetness, they add a pleasant acidity.
Matcha, basically green tea that has been ground into a fine powder, is full of so many “good for you” polyphenols and antioxidants, I won’t even begin to bore you with the list, but it’s also great if you need a mid-morning or afternoon pick me up, without leaving you feeling jittery like coffee.
It clears out the cobwebs and gives me a few more hours of focus and concentration.
The weather got to me this week. It doesn’t happen very often, but day after day of dark, drizzly rain, and an embarrassing mishap while putting on my boot, throwing my back out and rendering me completely helpless for a few days – had me feeling a little blue.
But then, like sunshine, Brian walked in the door with a juicy fresh pineapple, and things started looking up. It’s the simple things, isn’t it?
It’s pretty impossible to feel blue around a pineapple. Everything about them are happy, warm and sunny. They are so fragrant. Cut one open and let their scent uplift you. Be luxurious and buy a whole one and cut the whole thing up, keeping it in the fridge, eating it throughout the coming week. You will thank yourself for the little mood booster.
When making the smoothie, put everything in the blender and start sparingly with the matcha, you can always add more to taste.

The natural sweetness of the pineapple and the banana, requires no other sweetener….and will balance out kale, spinach…..or even broccoli. So make sure to put something green and healthy in your smoothie, you won’t even be able to taste it. Happy weekend!!

  1. We love this smoothie. I swear it gives me extra energy during the day. Today I just made it and added fresh ginger and turmeric root. Will be doing it like this from now on. I am addicted to it!

  2. I am new to smoothies, and would like to use them to lose weight. Is it ok to add oat to my smoothie (Calories wise and filling effect)? I want to consume smoothie as my only breakfast meal). TIA

  3. I am sorry about your back. Better down in crappy weather then good weather. Very sweet of Brian to come home with a pineapple. And LOOK what you did with it. Cool.

  4. This looks fabulous. I got hooked on a pineapple and cilantro smoothie earlier this month, and now I can’t stop putting pineapple in my blender! It’s like a little tropical escape!
