Pineapple Orange Smoothies
Since we have changed our eating habits I have stopped a few different times on a busy day by McDonalds in order to get a Small Wild Berry Smoothie. They are only 180 calories and they are delicious. But I figured I could make them at home with better ingredients that would be much better for us.
In the picture you see my very first smoothies. I used a recipe I found on Money Saving Mom and tweaked it just a little bit.
1 orange peeled and frozen
2 cups frozen pineapple
1 cup organic skim milk
1 cup organic vanilla yogurt
5tsp. organic sugar
I added the liquid ingredients to the blender first then sprinkled in the sugar and added the frozen fruit a little bit at a time blending in between. Once it was done we had a super yummy smoothie snack.
Since then we have been making smoothies several times a week. Sometimes we make them for breakfast and other times we make them for after school snacks. Everyone in this house loves them.
What is your favorite smoothie recipe?
