The following is a sponsored post “Pineapple Avocado Smoothie Recipe To Support Feeding America” and is on behalf of the Produce for Kids campaign with Publix. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
Wanting to mix up breakfast or after school snacks? Read on to get details for my family’s yummy Pineapple Avocado Smoothie, and how your produce purchase at Publix can benefit Feeding America.
Did you know that 1 in 8 people struggle with hunger in the US and 1 in 6 children don’t know when they will get their next meal?
Thanks to Produce for Kids and Publix Super Markets we all can help to change these statistics, because they have teamed up for another year to raise funds for local Feeding America member food banks.
FYI, this Publix and Produce for Kids campaign will run through Oct. 23 and is supported by nine participating fresh fruit and vegetable companies including:
- Orchards Hero Snack Size Gala Apples
- Crunch Pak® Sliced Apples
- Del Monte® Fruit Naturals® Cups
- Del Monte® Fresh Pineapple & Avocados
- Fresh Express® Packaged Salads
- Lakeside Produce Beefsteak Tomatoes & Hot House Cucumbers
- Marie’s® Dressings
- SUNSET® Tomatoes on the Vine, Campari® Tomatoes & Mini Cucumbers
- Mission Avocados
- Red ’n TastyTM Premium Vine-Ripened Tomatoes & Grape Tomatoes
*EVERY $1 DONATED TO FEEDING AMERICA HELPS SECURE AT LEAST 10 MEALS ON BEHALF OF MEMBER FOOD BANKS.
In addition, Publix customers can find signage in store about this initiative and are encouraged to support these brands by eating additional fruits and vegetables.

Pineapple Avocado Smoothie Recipe
1/2 Del Monte® Hass Avocado

First remove the outside and center of the pineapple, and chop it into cubes.
Then, cut the Avocado in half using the side without the pit and placing the leftovers in the fridge in an air tight container.
To finish, add all the items to a blender and combine on the smoothie setting. Serve the Pineapple Avocado Smoothie immediately.
