Pineapple Cilantro Protein Smoothie

Pineapple Cilantro Protein Smoothie | Simply Scrumptious by SarahHello everyone!!  This weekend I took an awesome trip to Rochester and had a great time catching up with some old friends.  I went to my friend Anna’s bridal shower and was able to catch up with a lot of my college friends.  It was so great to catch up with you girls!! :-)

I also met up with one of my good friends from high school, Neil, and we went to the original Wegmans!!! I was in heaven!! It is the biggest most amazing grocery store I have ever been to!!  While we were there, I tried some Dim Sum (delicious) and some green juice, made fresh at the store.  It was a mixture of fruits and veggies, like green apples, celery, and wheat grass.  It was pretty yummy as well!

Today I want to share with you a recipe for another green drink.  A Pineapple Cilantro Protein Smoothie! I like to make smoothies, as they are easy and refreshing, especially in the summer.  Protein smoothies are really great when you are on the run too!  I like to take them as a breakfast or lunch to go!  This is a very tropical tasting smoothie, which is also very healthy!  Pineapple has lots of natural enzymes, and did you know that Cilantro works as a natural antibiotic?!  It’s a pretty cool herb!  Anyways, here is the recipe!
