They say that some of our most vivid memories are connected to the foods we eat — and I believe it! We all have memories come flooding back when we eat certain foods — a fluffy slice of cake at a childhood birthday party, mom’s lasagna or that perfect homemade lemonade sipped on a hot summer day many years ago.

Food brings back plenty of memories for us. So I’m ignoring the winter weather outside and using this trick to my advantage and bringing back some aloha Hawaii memories. All via my fruity shake. A pineapple shake always reminds me of the tropics and my trips to sunny, warm, beachy places. So no need to break out the bathing suit, just pop open a straw, crank up the thermostat and give your blender some action with this Aloha Almond Pineapple Shake. Aloha winter!!…

Aloha Almond Pineapple Shake
serves 2

1 1/2 cups vanilla almond milk – make your own!
1 1/2 cups frozen pineapple tidbits
1 large ripe banana (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup agave syrup
handful of coconut – optional

(use less milk and a frozen banana for a thicker shake — note you may need a high speed blender to blend through)

Blend. Sip. Daydream. Happy winter!

    I am wondering if the agave nectar is really necessary? You would think that with the pineapple and the banana it would be sweet enough without the added sweetener.
