Non-Dairy Fruit Smoothie

Em Marz


Every night my kids ask if I’m going to make smoothies. If the answer is no they say “Aww, I guess we’ll just get some ice cream then.” (They’re so deprived.)

Also my kids like to drink their smoothies out of wine glasses. They think it’s fancier that way.
Come to think of it, this would be a GREAT grown up drink starter.

3 wine glass fulls


10 Min




2 c
frozen fruit, any combination
1 c
100% fruit juice, more or less as desired
snack bowl of pineapple tidbits in pineapple juice

Directions Step-By-Step

Blend or process all fruit in blender or ninja type processor adding juice slowly to desired consistency.
This recipe is a “however you like it” recipe. I usually use a mix of frozen peach, strawberry, mango and pineapple chunks. I also try to use an anti-oxidant juice like cranberry-pomegranate whenever possible. If you find this combination too sour, frozen banana chunks can be added to sweeten naturally or use a sweeter juice like grape, apple or peach.
You can also use less juice to make a more ice cream-like desert.
