Smoothies: Blueberry Avocado Pineapple

So, we discussed the foray into green smoothies previously. I finally had the courage to venture outside the confines of the Beginner’s Luck Green Smoothie to try something new. Bananas and I don’t always get along, and I was feeling a little bunched up (HAH!), if you know what I mean.  So, I pondered and I Pinterested and I was brave. I threw caution to the wind and made up my own recipe. And it was pretty good!  A little tart, but definitely filling and tasty. I can see a squirt of honey helping this smoothie along if you need that extra sweetness.
