Glorious Guava Banana Pineapple Smoothie

GuavaBananaSmoothie

 

 

Danielle did this as a demo at the U.S. Botanic Garden on October 31, 2015, in celebration of Bat Week. Bats love guava, but maybe more importantly they are pollinators of bananas, guava and the agave cactus. Bats act as our unseen gardener for many plant-based foods around the world.  For more information on these beneficial little mammals, go to: http://www.batcon.org/resources/media-education/halloween/bats-and-food

½ C pineapple chunks, frozen
