As many readers would know Sunday is market day for Brooke and I. Each Sunday we venture to South Melbourne markets to do the weekly grocery shop. Brooke is a woman on a mission when doing the grocery shop, methodically checking the items off the list, whereas I’m frequently straying from the plan. This Sunday Brooke turned around to see me holding not one but 2 whole pineapples (which, were not on the list). Pre-empting the question coming my way I said, “I’m going to make a banana pineapple smoothie”.
On the ride home, I now needed to back that audacious statement up so I Googled healthy banana pineapple smoothie recipe. To my surprise, I couldn’t find any, which appealed so I decided to make a hybrid of a couple I had read.
