Minty Pineapple-Banana-Cactus Smoothie (makes ~4 cups or serves 2)



I purchased some beautiful mint leaves and very sweet cut up pineapple chunks at Makawao Farmer's Market.  On this trip to Maui a friend told us the market has moved to the grounds of the historic Po'okela Church on Olinda Road.  They are open on Wednesdays from 9 am to 1 pm, best to show up early.  If you get a chance it is worth a visit!

By midday it's in the high 80s and very sunny on Maui, this sweet cold smoothie definitely cools me down!  

Ingredients:

2 C pineapple chunks, core and eyes removed
4 apple bananas, peeled
20 large mint leaves, washed well
1/2 C cactus pear syrup
1/2 C pass-o-guava (POG) juice, passion fruit or any juice you prefer or have
4-5 ice cubes

Method:

Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until well blended.
