You're gonna love this one!
It's thick, tropical and delicious. It's creamy, but dairy free. It's the perfect smoothie to make today, especially if it's as wet and dreich where you are as it is here in Scotland.
Pineapple, pears, banana, coconut milk and orange juice.
Have I told you recently how much I love my Vitamix recently? It made swift work of this smoothie. Big chunks of fruit thrown in with the other ingredients, hit the button and vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv it's smooth in seconds! Fabulous!
So forget the dismal weather and be transported to the sunshine with my smoothie.
Slurp! Slurp! Smile!

Tales of Pigling Bland, who is hosting the Breakfast Club for Helen over at Fuss Free Flavours this month.
The theme this month is rocket fuel and what better to give you rocket fuel than a banana?
I suggest drinking this smoothie along with porridge for complete rocket fuel.

The topic this month is fruit and as all my fruit in this smoohtie was sitting in my fruit bowl waiting to be used, it fits in nicely. In fact I think the pineapple was going to start screaming if I didn't use it soon!
