Apple, Orange, Pineapple Smoothie

Happy National Pineapple Day! Did you know, today 6/27 is the day to enjoy some pineapple.

 

Fresh pineapples used to be super rare finds when I was a kid, so I used to enjoy pineapples either as juice or canned. My home country Japan isn’t in the range of tropical climate, so fresh ones were only for expensive gifts. 

 

Now as I live in California, fresh pineapples are available all year round at a reasonable price. Especially during summer, I bring it back to my home and store it above the fridge for several days to let it ripe. Until I finally decide to cut it, my dinner buddy even asks, “Hey, are you ripe yet?” several times. When the outside of the pineapple gets a beautiful golden yellow color and starts to spread the sweet aroma, it’s time to enjoy them. 

 

Enjoying almost frozen fresh pineapple slices is our favorite way, but today I added them in my smoothie, so let me share the recipe and how it was!

<Cooking Tips>

  • I like smoothies so I added plenty of ice cubes, but if you prefer not too cold drinks, just omit ice cubes and make some fruit juice. It’s true that we’re in summer, but drinking too many super cold drinks makes your stomach surprised. 
  • I use this product when I make ice cubes. it’s easy to remove and wash!
  • I recommend using Fuji apple since they are sweet as fresh too, but if you prefer more like tangy kind, choose granny smith, the green one.

Mmm, the fruit flavor bursts in my mouth! If you don’t have fresh pineapples available, you can use canned pineapples, but I definitely prefer fresh one.  A few days ago, I noticed our canned pineapple, saved as an emergency food, was nearly expiring so we opened it as a dessert. I was so surprised by how those pineapples taste like plastic…Yes it’s canned so we can’t see if they’re good or bad until we open it. 

 

Pineapples are symbolized as welcome people, and yes, I’m welcoming you to my blog. Hope you have a wonderful day after you read this.
