Banana, Strawberry, Pineapple Smoothie

The last few afternoons I have been craving a smoothie.  We’ve been hard at work gardening and all I want is a cold “pick me up” when I’m exhausted.  This does the trick!  The best thing about this recipe is that you can match fruit to your liking and create your own. Other examples:  banana, orange, pear watermelon, kiwi banana, orange, strawberries banana, blueberries watermelon, orange, pineapple banana, apple, orange pineapple, kiwi orange, strawberries banana, peach strawberry, banana blueberries, apple, banana banana, cherries pineapple, blueberries blueberry, pomegranate, banana There are so many more variations.  Isn’t it amazing?   I also love this recipe because it gets rid of any fruit where you aren’t sure what to do with.  Many times I’m left with a few random strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, a banana that is very ripe, half an orange, etc.    Put all the soon to go bad fruits in your blender and you’ll quickly have a delicious drink.

Do you know how much I love bananas? I usually eat 2 bananas a day. blogIMG_2225_1
But sometimes by the time I get to the last one, it’s brown and very ripe.  I don’t like super gooey brown bananas raw, so this smoothie is perfect for it. blogIMG_2226_1

I cut it in half then cut into equal sized slices.  Then I throw them in a bag and freeze. blogIMG_2229_1

Strawberries are delicious.  I spotted our first strawberry flowers a few days ago. I can’t wait to harvest our own strawberries this year.  They’re always super sweet. blogIMG_2367

One happy blender!
