My Dad got me a fab gadget when he was over visiting last year that makes slicing up a pineapple so easy! The best bit too is you’re left with the shell of the pineapple and some of the delicious juice to drink.
As pineapples always remind me of hot Summer days I was waiting for a hot spell before I stocked up on them and created some recipes. However, I think the two days of sunshine we had here in Scotland was Summer this year, eager as I was to use my new gadget I’ve stocked up on pineapples – sliced them up with said gadget and filled the fridge and freezer!
I made this smoothie the other morning after my workout and it is delicious with the heat of the ginger coming through. It is a thick smoothie so if you prefer a thinner consistency add more milk.
