Pineapple Dreamsicle Smoothie
There is something really quite special about the flavor and texture of a dreamsicle. Try this twist on the classic with a pineapple dreamsicle smoothie to cool your throat and beat the heat on a summer’s day.Smoothies are a spinoff from the practice of pureeing fruits in the middle east and Mediterranean. Very hot climates have long crushed fruit and added water (or not) to have something cool to drink. But here in North America, it was refrigeration and, with refrigeration, the use of blenders and food processors that really got drinking our fruits going.
It was only 100 years ago that home refrigeration was available. It seems hard to us to consider that, but we haven’t had fridges for all that long a time. With refrigeration, food was able to be frozen. Until then, things like fruit were only eaten in season. Once we could freeze fruit and other items, life began to change.The smoothie was originally part of the fitness culture of the 1940s and 1950s, but in the 1960s the hippie and granola movement, in the interests of pure food, spread the popularity of the drink around the globe.
Today, smoothies can be bought pretty much anywhere, made of almost anything. The basic premise still remains and smoothies are rich blends of fruits and vegetables that can offer us a really yummy way to take in our vitamins. They are a delicious, cool, wonderful drink that works in both summer and winter. It satisfies our thirst and desire for something sweet as well as provides us with usually whopping amounts of nutrients.This smoothie follows the most classic of recipes blending delicious fruits in a tangy and satisfying combination.
