In the summertime I love the aromatic flavor of fresh basil with seasonal fruits. This icy summer Pineapple Basil Smoothie mixes the very Italian with the extremely tropical. Whip this up... your blender, and find out just how wonderful basil tastes with pineapple.

Chef Tips

If you want to use a fresh pineapple, it’s easy to freeze.
Here’s how:

Peel the pineapple, quarter it and core it. Slice the quarters 1” thick, then cut the slices up into chunks.

Spread the pineapple chunks onto a cookie sheet in a single layer. Place in the freezer until the chunks are frozen solid.

Bag them in quart Ziplock freezer bags and return to the freezer to store for a rainy, or sunny, day.
