Drinking Pink Rabbits

This is one of many posts where I guarantee reference to Pink Rabbits.  For any The National fans out there, don’t be too hopeful, this is just a smoothie recipe, but add some liquor and we can toast to the real Pink Rabbits later.

For every one else, just know Pink Rabbits is a song from the much anticipated and very excellent 6th album by The National.  My favorite band, give them a listen, they will be your favorite band too one day.

What you need

  • Pineapple, 3 rings
  • 1 Banana
  • Strawberries, a handful (approx 1 cup)
  • 6 oz Coconut Milk
  • Ice

Pile them into the blender,  pulse, blend.

Observe the lovely pink color and sweet aroma.  Now top with pineapple stalks, two each for rabbit ears.  Sit in a fainting chair, enjoy. (or add tequila – get buzzed, Matt Berninger style)

Pineapple Kale Smoothie

We all love smoothies.  Especially in the summer when the fruit is fresh and the air is hot!

I made this one today after I got back from the gym and it was the perfect refreshment, a strong flavor and the texture of a frappucino… all for 100 calories a serving.

This recipe makes 2 glasses (2 servings)

What you need

  • 1 full cup of kale leaves (about 4 stalks)
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks (or 1/2 of a fresh pineapple)
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice

Combine ingredients and blend!  The more you blend, the more frothy it will become.

I added the pineapple stalk into the cup which can be used as a spoon. Or a serving suggestion for children to make a healthy smoothie more exciting.   …Enjoy!
