This cherry pineapple smoothie takes just minutes to make and is a great nutritional breakfast option.
This weekend has been really crazy for me because I’ve been working a lot. Yesterday, I came home around 9pm because we are under deadlines and we really have to finish the project that we are working on by tomorrow. But since we’ve been working a lot, I am pretty sure all will be done on time. Luckily, I don’t really mind to work under pressure and short turn-around times. I actually think when we are under pressure we produce much more and so many times we become even more creative.One thing that really helps me to keep up with the busy days is a good homemade meal. Sometimes I get home very tired, but I always try to find the energy to make some nutritious recipes for my husband and me for dinner and then we can have leftovers for lunch the next day. Of course, I don’t always cook after work. There are days after work I wish to lay down on my sofa and watch some comedy show on TV for 2 hours, but this is not what my everyday evening looks like.As much as I love a good dinner, I also love a delicious breakfast. This is the first meal of the day and it should be full of nutrients to give us all the energy we need during the day. I love starting my day with my almond butter waffles or my peanut butter pancakes, but these are the things that I make on the weekend. During the week, I really love a good fruit smoothie. I’ve never made a cherry smoothie before, but I made one this morning and it tasted great with the sweetness of the pineapple. Mmmmm… so yummy! My pineapple was so sweet that I didn’t even need to add maple syrup or honey. This combo of cherry and pineapple really surprised me in a nice way that I’ll be making this smoothie more often. So, I hope you can give this fresh smoothie a try and let me know how it was.
