Fresh and Flavorful

The original island word for pineapple means “beautiful fruit” and indeed it is. While far more nutritious in its fresh, raw form, frozen pineapple still has great low-fat, high-vitamin C food value. Fun tip: cut the banana into small wheels and freeze for an hour before blending for a richer, thicker smoothie with a texture almost like ice cream.
