Bryan Adam's Inspired Pineapple-Mango Smoothie


A few weeks back I was searching for recipes developed by rock stars. I found one from Elvis Presley (you'll find the post here), Beyonce, Madonna, Eric Clapton and Debby Harry (lead singer of Blondie…remember them?). I also found a smoothie recipe from Bryan Adam’s. It was a Pineapple-Peach smoothie and it looked fantastic! However it required a juicer, which I don’t have, and frozen peaches which I was unable to find at the grocery store.

Since I don’t have a juicer I purchased a can of pineapple juice and instead of frozen peaches I purchased a bag of frozen mango chunks. In a blender I combined 1 cup pineapple juice and 1 cup mango chunks. I also tossed in a banana to mellow it out and add extra thickness. I was tempted to add more ingredients but thankfully stopped myself because this smoothie is like heaven!

Sometimes keeping a recipe as simple as Bryan Adam’s white tee-shirt and blue jean outfits of the ‘80s is a good thing!
