Berry Pineapple Smoothie Recipe

The food documentaries I watch always remind me to eat more veggies. For me, drinking them is easier which is why I love recipes like the kale cucumber smoothie I shared last week.

But fruit? I never need a reminder to consume more of that. I love fresh fruit in everything from cocktails (strawberry cocktails, anyone?) to desserts, smoothies and even dipped in chocolate.

Since it’s getting close to the warmer months and fresh berries and tropical fruits are coming into season I’ve been making a lot of different fresh fruit smoothies.

Today I’m sharing one that I recently made and we all loved.

Usually I use coconut water as the liquid for my smoothies but for this berry pineapple smoothie I decided to use some of the almond milk I made.

The smoothie was nice and creamy and absolutely perfect.

It was also protein rich with a scoop of the superfood, hempseeds. If you’ve never tried hempseeds, you should. They are a complete protein source that is easily digestible for the body. They were even included on my list of protein sources for vegetarians.

    This is a good recipe to use my shredded coconut. Hempseeds are flax seeds, right?
