At Whole Foods, they have a pineapple-basil gelato that is amazing and I thought a smoothie version would be super refreshing. This recipe is a keeper — and just a bit healthier. 😉
At Whole Foods, they have a pineapple-basil gelato that is amazing. Almost as amazing as their orange-fig gelato. Or maybe those flavors are sorbets. I don’t know. It doesn’t matter. They’re freaking delicious.
Well, I happened to have an excess of pineapple and basil on hand yesterday. Enter the pineapple-basil smoothie. It tastes like the pineapple-basil gelato/sorbet/whatever had melted and poured itself into my glass. And it was good.

I LOVE basil, but my dad thinks it tastes like soap. Weird!
hahaha! That’s hilarious!
I agree that there are too many good blogs and not enough time! Your weekender helps simplify things for me. 🙂
That basil smoothie looks interesting. I love basil and recently had a chocolate filled with basil cream. It was awesome. Nobody ever thinks of basil as a compliment to sweet foods.
We grow our own basil and I frequently find myself blogging about it in one way or another… I am DYING for that pineapple basil sorbet!
I adore basil, it’s so refreshing! I have to agree with you about the oreos, especially the double-stuffed ones. The mint oreos are delicious too!
I love how you include your favorite posts from other blogs.
That shake looks delicious!!!!!!! I love when unexpected foods are pared together, pineapple and basil, who’d have thought? I always add a banana to my shakes and i wonder if it would absorb some of the pineapple’s sweetness?
Double stuff mint oreos= my weakness!!!!
Loved all those linked blog posts. Many of them I had already read, but some I had not. The pineapple basil smoothie sounds great! I just bought some fresh basil today for a caprese salad. And I may just have to finally break down and buy a food processor to make my own pesto!
What a unique smoothie combo! I always love WF recipes.
I can’t resist dark chocolate M&Ms. My mom always keeps a stock, and I always seem to be grabbing a few to nibble on.
Oreos. Do they still make the golden ones too? I cannot resist those things. Love your Weekender as always!
I really like all those low-fat ice creams (Skinny Cow, etc). I know they have like ten million ingredients in them and everything, but I like the way they taste.
That smoothie sounds insanely delicious- I LOVE pineapple & basil!! 🙂
Oatmeal cream pies. It’s the marshmallow middle-I can’t resist.
The bad processed food I can’t resist….. PEEPS! I just love those little suckers, especially when they’re old and hard. Mmmmmm
And of course I buzzed your post – duh!
I love basil. Pesto specifically. And also a nice BTM (basil, tomato, mozz) sandwich. Yumm, one of my favorite things about summer is that you can find it easily.
I love sour gummies and sour jelly beans! 🙂
I love basil so much! This morning, actually, I opened the fridge, pulled out my basil and just stood there smelling it for about 5 minutes. It is hands down my favorite smell on earth, and the taste is pretty stellar, too.
I love ALL cereal. Processed, sugary, ALL of it. Luckily, some of the healthy ones taste good enough to fool my taste buds, but I could eat cereal for the rest of my life.
I’m actually not so big on basil. I’ll eat it and use it in recipes, but I definitely have to be in the mood for it — otherwise, it can be a bit overpowering to me. Your smoothie recipe sounds really good, though — I loooooove me some pineapple.
Your smoothie looks like an amazing lunch-time meal. I think I have all the ingredients 🙂
Looks good – I can’t wait to try it!
I love basil. One of my favorite salads is fresh basil, mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes. YUM!
Girl Scout thin mints. Can eat an entire box in one sitting. Not that I know this from experience (ok, so maybe it’s happened once or twice…or maybe ten times, but who’s counting??)
I love basil! but I’ve never thought to mix pineapple and basil, interesting 🙂
