Pineapple Mint Smoothie
One of the best aspects about traveling besides sightseeing ofcourse, is the new tastes you have the chance to be exposed to. While Neal and I were in Nairobi, we enjoyed daily breakfast feasts the hotels boasted consisting of exotic fruits, fresh juices, eggs cooked however you please, pastries, pancakes, waffles, an assortment of cheeses---we were incredibly spoiled!
The recipe I have for today is inspired by a fresh Pineapple Mint juice we had our first morning there! This smoothie is distinctive from the others on our blog and you will just have to taste it yourself to know why.....
Here is a simple video if you have never cut a pineapple before and unsure of the correct way to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IH7nfHbfHBY
