OK, let me start with a humble apology for missing the last couple of posts for the smoothie recipes. I am back on track and will be hitting you with a trifecta of green smoothies to tickle your taste buds.
Keeping in stride with our Smoothie Days of Summer, it is day four and time to give you the newest smoothie recipe.
Prepare the components for this smoothie the night before, then blend them in the morning for a zesty beverage that’s great for brunch.
Day four’s smoothie is the Pineapple-Tomatillo Smoothie.
2 cups chopped fresh tomatillos
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1/2 jalapeño chile, seeded
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
- Bring tomatillos, pineapple juice, and jalapeño to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and chill.
- Combine tomatillo mixture, pineapple chunks, and cilantro in blender. Puree on high until thoroughly blended.

On a recent trip to Wisconsin, I had the extreme pleasure of visiting the Willy Street Co-op. This organic co-op is located in two locations in Wisconsin.
- 1221 Williamson St. Madison, WI
- 6825 University Ave. Middleton, WI
My visit was to the one on University Ave. It is an incredible, clean and fun place to go. Stopping at the information desk right inside the front door, I was greeted with a big smile and a welcome attitude from the young lady who staffed this spot. She answered my questions and had time to go over how things work.
