I love smoothies and when I make them, I tend to put all things fruity that I have on hand in them. I just made this one for the first time and decided that it was so delicious I had to share it with you. This was a big hit with my family and I have been asked to make it again real soon. I hope you make it soon too!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Tart, sweet, satisfying and good for you too! And the color couldn't be prettier. The flavors of very fruit blend well together. Great for a hot summer day or an after-school treat. This could be dressed up a bit with a dollop of whipped cream!

Ingredients

1 large
orange, juiced
3/4 c
crushed pineapple, or enough to make 1 cup when added to orange juice.
1 medium
apple, cubed
6 oz
container strawberry or peach yogurt, frozen & cut in chunks
1/8 c
honey, more if needed
2 c
mixture of raspberries, blackberries & blueberries, frozen
1 c
strawberries, frozen
1 large
banana, frozen and cut up
Handful large
ice, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Squeeze orange an put in a 1 cup measuring cup. Add enough crushed pineapple to make one full cup. Place in blender.
2
Add cut up apples.
3
Blend mixture until smooth.
4
Add cut up frozen yogurt.
5
Blend until smooth.
6
Add honey and blend until smooth.
7
Add mix of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. Blend until smooth.
8
Add strawberries and blend until smooth.
9
Add chopped banana and blend until smooth. Taste and add more honey if berries are to tart.
10
At this point you can add ice and blend until smooth. I didn't because it was already thick enough and cold enough!
11
Serve and enjoy!

HINT/SUGGESTION:
If you have any of the smoothie mixture left over, you can freeze it. As I make smoothies, I just keep adding to the frozen mixture until I have enough to make one or two smoothies. I then place container in Microwave and nuke until it is at a consistency that can be stirred into a thick smoothie. It's like I just made it....smooth, icy, cold and perfect for those days when you are in a hurry!
