Today, we get a very special treat courtesy of Olympic athlete Elena Hight. She knows a thing or two about staying healthy and fit, so I’m delighted to have her sharing her favorite smoothie recipe with us as we try to cool down for the summer. Elena, a Team Toyota Athlete and an American Olympic snowboarder who recently spent the weekend at #HotelTacoma, is lending us her favorite smoothie recipe to enjoy weather you are soaking up the sun at the beach or for an active afternoon hiking outdoors. Read ahead for the full breakdown.
- 1 cup chopped pineapple
- 1?2 banana
- 1?2 cup coconut water
- Juice of 1 lime
- 3-4 sprigs mint
- 3-4 sprigs basil
- 2 tsp. agave
Preparation: One night before, chop pineapple and banana and freeze. Add all the ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
Note: If you don’t freeze the fruit in advance, just add ice cubes to fresh fruit in the blender for similar consistency.
Sounds absolutely delicious and refreshing, don’t you think? Thanks to Elena for her delicious beverage recipe. Let me know how it works out for you!
