Pineapple Sage Recipes
The other day on Twitter, I mentioned that I was going to cut back my pineapple sage a bit, and I needed a recipe to use up the cuttings. I ended up making a pineapple sage smoothie. For a very yummy breakfast drink, combine the following ingredients in blender a pulse until smooth:
- 1/3 cup skim milk
- 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 banana
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 1/2 tablespoons packed pineapple sage, chopped
