Tropical Pineapple Blackberry Smoothie + How to Core a Pineapple

Summer is officially here and we have been having a heat wave this week of up to 109 degrees! I hope you all are keeping cool in the shade.  I don’t know about you but when it gets that hot, I don’t have much of an appetite for heavy foods, much less cooked foods.  This time of the year is when I tend to eat 100% raw foods because that is all my body craves.  Fruit is so cooling and so refreshing.

This pineapple smoothie recipe is so much fun to drink, and makes for a beautiful presentation if you wanted to serve it to guests.  It’s bursting with tropical flavors so as you sip on it, just close your eyes and imagine the sand between your feet and the warm sea water flowing between your toes. 🙂  Now that I’ve set the mood for this smoothie (hehe) are you ready to get your sippin on?
