Sunday Pineapple Smoothie

For breakfast this morning, I went out to the little propane stove on my porch/cocina (kitchen), had my cup of Manayupa tea, then  made a veggie burger with garbanzos and cumin, roasted tomato with barely warmed chard thrown on the fire, with herbs thrown on top, and avocado. I drank my Sunday Green Piña Smoothie to top it off.


Meanwhile, Wilson dropped by with some materials, and I asked him, “Wilson, why do you always laugh when I call the worker and say, “Emiliano?” He finally explained, “Because it sounds like you’re saying “Un mil ano – a thousand years, when you call the worker Emiliano.” Geez, you gotta be really careful with the Ecuadorian vowels, and enunciate clearly – not one of my gifts!


Recipe of the Day: Piña Smoothie

1 c. piña tea (see yesterday’s post)

1 frozen banana

1 c. coconut kefir  (See April post for recipe)

Handful fresh pineapple

Handful of greens, if desired

Directions. Blend.

Word of the Day: piña – pineapple

Travel Tip of the Day: Serve your guests food, if possible. One of the great and easy things to pull out of the Ecuadorian hat is a smoothie, especially if you have frozen bananas on hand. Pour in some juice, some fresh orange or lemon juice, apples, greens if they want, and you’ve got a great treat for anyone on a hot Ecuadorian day.

  1. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article. The Smoothie Recipe is AMAZING. I’ve been craving pineapple lately. There are so many sites nowadays that are pushing some sort of green “health shake powder” that I am leery to go to any blogs talking about smoothie making. It was refreshing not to find you trying to sell me something. It was really nice just to be part of the conversation, Dorothy. I will be sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely return.
