Our whole family loves smoothies for breakfast every morning, but we’re total creatures of habit and they end up tasting the same every single day!
The team from Nutribullet sent me the recipe and ingredients to make Pineapple Lump Smoothies last week and they’ve definitely shaken us out of the smoothie rut. We can’t get enough of this tropical, chocolatey concoction so I thought I’d share the recipe with you!
NutriBullet Pineapple Lump Smoothie Recipe
3/4 cup chopped fresh pineapple
1/2 ripe banana
2 large medjool dates
1 heaped tsp cacao
1 heaped tsp cacao nibs
1 Tbs coconut cream
1/3 cup almond milk
> Blend in a small NutriBullet cup and serve in a chilled glass, topped with fresh pineapple and a sprinkling of cacao nibs.
Obviously no fancy food styling here! It was too delicious to phaff around with and really does taste like a Pineapple Lump! I use the NutriBullet Pro which is my favourite appliance in the whole kitchen (after my Nespresso machine lol!), this guy will change the way you blend, I promise!
Both our kids are BIG fans of second breakfasts. If Nix has had porridge or eggs for breakfast he’ll devour a small smoothie in a mini milk bottle at about 9am. At least if he starts the day with THIS much goodness in him I don’t stress too much about the amount he eats at dinner – which is when the wheels fall off lol.
Vitasoy have been so kind as to send us some samples of their new Coconut Milk, so we have been busy recipe testing and finding ways in which we can incorporate this yummy, dairy-free milk option into our family diet. We have all switched to coconut milk at breakfast; we make Nixon’s porridge with it, Ethan and Dave have it with their cereal, I whip up my microwave eggs with it and Dave has it with his coffee. I’m not often organised enough to make smoothies in the morning before Ethan leaves for school, but I was sure he wouldn’t object to one for afternoon tea!
It’s getting close to summer and all of those luscious berries are getting cheaper and cheaper – I picked up 2 punnets of strawberries for $4 and used these as the base for this easy-peasy smoothie.
Makes 2 smoothies
1 cup Vitasoy Original Coconut Milk
1 frozen banana, semi-thawed
1 small punnet strawberries
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Teaspoon of cacao powder and coconut to garnish
Throw it all in the blender, and ………….. you’re done!
Not rocket science, but it is delish. Nixie and E drank their entire servings and Ethan didn’t ask for food until dinner time – that’s a serious win!
