Allison's Orange and Pineapple Smoothie

Does this orange and pineapple smoothie make you feel dizzy from summer? One thing I love about Allison's cookbook is that she makes recipes that are easy and familiar. No funky ingredients, just simple homemade (and semi-homemade) recipes that are sure to please your family. Now, because I know Allison personally, I know how hard she worked on this book to create the best recipes for this summer-inspired cookbook, and it didn't disappoint! I love bright and colorful images and easy recipes. My oldest son wants to make "all the shrimp". Haha.

When I think of summer, I instantly think of myself, sitting in the shade with a cold drink in hand, as I watch the children play on the patio. Obviously, I had to try this Orange and Pineapple Smoothie. I'm also a fan of fresh pineapple, so this drink was a must! I will also say that I am very excited to try the Cheese and raspberry bars, Asian Caesar Pasta Salad with Chicken, Bacon Burger and Eggs and Grilled Shrimp Tacos Marinated in Asia (all pictured below) from Allison's cookbook too. I tell you, there is something for everyone in this cookbook.

My daughter keeps asking me to make more of this Pineapple Orange Smoothie! I consider it more of a granita, just because it has a little soda to make it frothy, but fresh fruit, ice, orange juice, and coconut milk create a slightly refreshing and super refreshing drink. You will love having this drink this summer!
