pineapple, orange & banana smoothie
If you look on the top shelf of my fridge, there are three drinks you’re guaranteed to find: a pitcher of iced tea, milk…and pine-orange-banana juice. It’s been my favorite for about…oh…twenty years. :) (Gosh, I’m getting old!)
So when I realized this week that I coincidentally had real oranges, bananas, and a fresh pineapple in the house, thought I would kick it up another notch and make the real thing! And I’m happy to report it was, of course, absolutely fabulous. And super sweet — definitely no extra honey, vanilla, or other ingredients needed.
Pineapple, Orange & Banana Smoothie Recipe
- 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
- 2 bananas, peeled
- 1 orange, peeled
- 1 cup ice
- 1 Tbsp. ground flax seed and/or wheat germ (optional)
In a blender, combine all ingredients. Blend until smooth, then serve immediately. (If your blender has trouble getting going, you may need to add in a few tablespoons of water or juice to get it started.)
If you think a few hours ahead before making this (instead of impulsively, like me :-)), toss these fruits (pre-chopped) into the freezer for a few hours. Then there’s no need to use ice!!
