Recipe - Pineapple Orange Smoothie

I’ve always loved smoothies, but lately I’ve been making them more frequently since they’re such an easy way to get in most of the fruits I need to eat for the day.  My newest favorite version?  Pineapple and orange…mmmm!  It’s a great tropical drink and would be a good way to start off the morning. 

Week20 001

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1/2 cup of frozen pineapple tidbits (I found a bag at Trader Joe’s)
  • 5 frozen slices of banana (if you really like the taste of bananas, you could add more, I only use them to thicken the mixture)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup non-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 3 or 4 ice cubes (I ended up using 6 ice cubes because I like my smoothies extra thick)

Blend all ingredients together for about 1 minute until smooth.  Enjoy!  This makes about two 8 oz smoothies.

You could also substitute the pineapple for frozen mango chunks instead – my Trader Joe’s didn’t have the frozen mango last time so I decided to go with pineapple and I’m glad I did!
