Strawberry Peachy Pineapple Power Up Smoothie

Barbara Oseland Recipe

By Barbara Oseland BOseland

Great Smoothie for the AM, had it today pretty early and helped me stay full for about 5 hrs or so and I was running around all morning with the oatmeal and protein powder. Very tasty, fruity and a little tart from the lemon juice, but nicely balanced out with the splenda and fruit. Keeps getting better every morning.

This will be slightly thick. If you wish to have it a thinner smoothie, omit 5 ice cubes and add 3 tbsp of water or juice (lemon or peach).
