Healthy Eating


I first shared this Aloha Tropical Smoothie recipe on Lil Luna where I am a contributor. Beat the summer heat with a yummy, refreshing, and healthy Tropical Strawberry Smoothie.  No need to go to Hawaii when you’ve got this in hand!

I thought it was humid living in St. Louis and Omaha but Long Island takes the cake. When walking to my car it feels like I’m walking in a sauna and I look like I did! A cool refreshing Tropical Strawberry Smoothie in the hot afternoon is a necessity.

I thought we were going to be past apartment living at this point but since we’ll only be in New York for 1 year it was the best  only affordable option. The good think is that we found a place that has a washer and dryer in it AND we have a pool. This is the first time we’ve ever had a community pool and it’s been so fun especially for my kids. We don’t ever want the summer to end!

After swimming for a few hours, the girls and I like to come home and drink a smoothie. It’s the perfect ending to a fun day. The best is when my four-year-old says “This is the bestest day ever!” And it truly is. Aren’t the simple and relaxing days spend as a family the best?

This smoothie is super simple to make. Though, aren’t all smoothies? This Aloha Pineapple Smoothie has just 6 simple  ingredients- pineapple, strawberries, banana, Greek yogurt, ice, and pineapple juice. This follows my basic smoothie formula– fruits + banana + Greek yogurt + ice (optional) + juice.  Follow this smoothie and you’ll have a perfect smoothie every time. Perfectly sweet, refreshing, and healthy! I especially love using Greek yogurt versus just regular because of the high protein content. Helps keep me more full. Enjoy!
