My sister-in-law, Jeanne, is visiting from Boston this week, and we’re going to have a fab time touring SoCal and eating vegan. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not pushing my diet on her. Jeanne wants to go plant-based to lose weight and for her health. So while she’s here, I’m going to show her the ropes.
Jeanne arrived jet lagged and famished early this afternoon, so I made her a late lunch of Sweet No-Tuna Salad sammies, pita chips and a Pineapple-Banana Green Smoothie. Knowing that she hasn’t liked the green smoothies she’s made at home, I anxiously watched her sip the smoothie. I was relieved when her eyes lit up and she said, “This is really good!”
She liked the sandwich to, which puts us at 2 for 2. So be prepared Bill, it looks like your wife will be coming home vegan!
If you’re interested in making the Pineapple-Banana Green Smoothie, here’s the recipe:
Pineapple-Banana Green Smoothie
1 cup almond milk
1 cup frozen pineapple
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon unsweetened flaked coconut
1 handful spinach
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend for 45 seconds or until desired consistency is reached.
Note: This recipe works best in a high-speed blender like a Vitamix.
