A Berry Berry Pineapple Shake

Hi Matirulis,

Shakes are something spectacular.  I mean just think about it for a moment, what can be better than mixing all your favorite fruits together with some yogurt and ice and drink it on a hot sunny day? Well, I can think of a few things that are better than that. But, it is amazing the creations you can come up with and how things taste when you combine such different and similar flavors.  A few weeks ago I had bought some frozen strawberries, blueberries, and coconut.  The coconut I tried to use in a very failed attempt to make coconut brownies that I spared you from hearing about, but I still had the berries and some fresh pineapple.

You do not need to follow any specific recipe for a fresh fruit shake. All you need is a blender, some  yogurt or water (if you want it ‘healthier’), and ice. You might or might not want to add any sugar.  “A” says that fruits already have so much natural sugar that there is no need to add any more. I like to add a pinch to bring out the flavors even more.

So what did we do?

We added a little yogurt that we had, it was about 1 tbsp.  We would have added more but we just did not have so instead we added the leftover pineapple juice.  We added about 8 strawberries, a handful of blueberries, and the pineapple.  The you blend it and drink!

It is a healthy snack that can be put together in no time.

Even better, you can make your own ‘healthy’ mixed drinks if you want to have this at night by adding some rum or vodka to the mixture if you are in a party mood.

Hope you are having as beautiful and sunny days as we are!
