Instructions for mothers day smoothie

Put all ingredients into blender container and blend them. Pour the mixture into a decorative glass. Chop a few more almonds and sprinkle on top of the smoothie. Anything that mom doesn't like can be deleted. There is a such variety of fruits in this smoothie that it would still be tasty if you left something out.

This is very satisfying and will hold mom until time for lunch. This could be a morning smoothie any day of the year, but is especially nice for a special day's treat.

Whenever I have to cut a fresh pineapple, I dread it, but I found a video which gave a different method of cutting and peeling pineapple. I tried the method, and I was amazed at how much faster and easier it was to cut and peel the pineapple. For me, there was less waste, although, I did quite a bit of unnecessary tasting.  This method was also not at all messy (well, maybe a pinch). Click this sentence to go to the video.
