Pineapple POM Smoothie


Summer's not going to be here for another couple of months or so and I figured I'd give my self a taste of what I'll be having during that time. To get the party -- sort of -- started, I made myself a smoothie.  Smoothies are good, tasty and healthy.  I guess from having that fresh fruit smoothie on the set of Hawthorne, a craving kicked in and I had to make me one. This one is simple. I have a bunch of those canned pineapple tidbits. I popped one open. Had some POM juice in the fridge and used that as well.

I had minimal ice, but that didn't matter. Does ice evaporate in the freezer? I've noticed that over time ice trays that were once full have dwindled down to near nubs. But luckily, whatever was left had enough to make two glasses worth. I just stock piled the fresh fruit which I like anyway. Smoothies are probaby the easiest drinks one can make.

Serves 2-3



Pineapple POM Smoothie

2 c pineapple chunk or tidbits plus some juice
1/2 c POM juice
1 c ice

Combine everything in the blender until smooth.

I am so ready for all these frosty fruit drinks! I still haven't inaugurated my new blender, which I bought 3 months ago because I swore I couldn't live without one. 8-P

Mmmm, smoothie. Good stuff.

And yeah, I think ice evaporates. I'm not 100% on that though.

i love the use of the POM in there, pure refreshment!

I'm not sure why I didn't think to make a smoothie when I had POM stockpiled in the fridge! What a great idea.

And yes I agree that ice evaporates because sometimes my ice maker is full of ice that seems a bit off size-wise!
