Any one who knows me well will tell that i love smoothies and if its a smoothie for breakfast, i ll be more than happy. Fruit always delights me in any form any time. And i have this fetish for pineapples. I must say that the fruit has grown on me only in the recent past. My mouth used to itch in a strange way whenever i ate pineapples as a kid. So that sort of put me off the fruit. But post marriage, my mouth also changed along with a sundry other things and since then pine apples have a special place in my heart.
Its such a versatile fruit that can be used up in savory and sweet dishes alike. The only downside to a pineapple is the process of cutting it. But there seems to be a fancy pansy gadget to do even that these days.
Please dont get me started on cutting and chopping gadgets. I love my knives and i simply dont see the point of buying a specific tool for cutting a specific fruit, least of all a banana. I mean a banana slicer is like so blah! Pineapple, i can still understand.
By the way, i dont own a pineapple cutter or whatever that is called. I get mine chopped from the vendor for an extra 5 bucks. Ah! There now, go feel jealous and regret spending that 1000 odd plus on your gadget ( buwahaha )
This smoothie happened with some leftover pineapple after pineapple rasam and pineapple kesari.
I used whatever fruit i had on hand that day. ( Read i was scavenging my fridge for bits and chunks of fruit). Pineapple is a very good antacid and ginger is a great digestive. So this smoothie will get all those pepsin going in your stomach. Make this smoothie the night before and enjoy it cold the next morning for breakfast and i m sure you will be a happy camper the whole day.
