    1. I was just looking at your wonderful blog…It’s always a pleasure to see you wonderful recipes and beautiful posts! Anyway, I used rolled oat in this smoothie to add extra proteins and fibre, but also because, if you blend it properly with the fruits, it makes the smoothie creamier and add a little bit of nice flavour to the drink…I really enjoyed it!! It is very filling, though…Definitely a breakfast smoothie!🙂

    1. Hi Linda! Thank you so much!🙂 When I was making this smoothie I added a few seeds of cardamom for their fresh flavour… I had the feeling that they would work well with pineapple…It is delicious! Give it a try, you’ll like it!

    1. Wow, thank you!! It is quite an unusual combination, but I think cardamom really works with the pineapple, with its refreshing flavour… This smoothie is perfect as a light lunch, because it is quite filling. XX
