What’s better than a strawberry smoothie with delicious chunks of sweetened pineapple on the bottom? A Pineapple Upside-Down Strawberry Smoothie that’s EATEN WTH A SPOON. That’s right- this smoothie is SO THICK you MUST eat it with a spoon. 

Let’s get real, it’s the only way I eat smoothies. Thick n creamy n with a spoon! 

I’ve been wanting to make a cold, fruity beverage ever since I got home from our cruise, and this hit. the. spot.

Blake and I were all about the fruity drinks during the day (and night!). I think we tried almost everything on the menu :P This is more of a smoothie than a drink…but hey, add some rum and you’ve got yourself a little somethin’ somethin’!

I am a huge fan of mixing hot and cold, hence broiling the pineapple before laying it with a strawberry smoothie. I even added some coconut sugar for a little more sweetness because….why not?!
