GMAK brings you a smooth taste of Hawaii!


by Associated Press

Laurie Constantino delivers a fresh and fantastic taste of Hawaii with her special pineapple smoothie shake!

A few tips Laurie learned from a real pineapple farmer include how to pick a ripe pineapple. A pineapple should be the "Yellowest, or goldest" available. Another hint at it's freshness is to smell the base of the core, which should have a sweet, pineapple scent.

Her recipe is easy enough for anyone to try!


1 frozen banana
1 snack-size ziploc bag of frozen pineapple
1 tbsp of honey
1 cup of water
1 handful of fresh mint leaves (for an ultra fresh taste!)

Add the ingredients together in a blender along with some ice, and prepare to enjoy the true taste of beautiful Hawaii.
