Equipment

Ingredients
 
 

  • 2 cups diced pineapple (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 medium orange, peeled
  • 1 frozen banana, previously peeled
  • ¼ cup plain 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • Ice (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Garnish glass with a slice of orange or piece of pineapple.

Notes

  • If you like, you can use a mixture of 1 1/2 cups diced pineapple and 1/2 cup mango instead of 2 cups diced pineapple
  • You can substitute other liquids as the base of the smoothie instead of orange juice.  Coconut water and milk are examples.
  • You can add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed for a boost of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and phytonutrients.
  • Frozen bananas work great in smoothies.  I keep frozen bananas in my freezer to use for smoothies.  Just be sure to peel them before freezing them- it's really hard to peel frozen bananas!
  • Add a handful of ice to your smoothie if you're using fresh fruit.  If using frozen fruit, you can skip the ice.
