Pineapples are popping up everywhere! It is a bit of a random trend, but I am guessing that you have also seen these gorgeous little gems dotted all over the Fashion and Interior worlds right now.

Here at Pinks & Green we have gone almost as bonkers about pineapples as we have about flamingos (and that is saying something) we can’t even have a drink without using one of our pineapple pom-pom straws. We are eating, sleeping, drinking, wearing pineapples.

We have RICE storage jars, straws, cocktail sticks, napkins, candles and cake decorations just to mention a few goodies. We LOVE them. You don’t have to go as over-the-top as us, you can subtly work this hot summer trend into your home or wardrobe or just include it into a garden party theme.

We are just as crazy about eating and drinking pineapples and Issy and I would love to share one of our Pineapple Smoothie recipes we concocted. You can try this or take a peek at Pintrest for lots of other fabulous recipes and inspirational recipes (some great pina colada’s for examples)

Issy’s Easy Peasy Pineapple Smoothie

Seriously super quick and super yummy, best served straight away in a melamine cup of course with pineapple pom-pom straws!


  • 1 melamine cup of frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1/2 melamine cup of crushed ice
  • 1/2 melamine cup of vanilla yogurt (or plain or greek, you choose)
  • 1 1/2 melamine cup of milk (I use skimmed) or you can use coconut milk


Pop the pineapple, banana, yogurt and ice into a blender and pulse until smooth
Slowly add the milk until you get your desired consistency
Pour into your melamine beaker or acrylic tumbler, pop in your pineapple pom-pom straw and start slurping!
