Pineapple Orange Smoothie

posIt’s been a while since I’ve had a smoothie. My poor lonely blender. It sits on the counter, staring at me, empty inside. I couldn’t take it anymore. I had to have a smoothie.

The beautiful thing about smoothies is that you can add several ingredients and some will really hide flavors that maybe aren’t your favorite. I had a coupon for some yogurt that turned out to be kind of gross when eaten as yogurt with a spoon. But add it to a smoothie and it’s perfectly fine!

Pineapple Orange Smoothie
1 orange
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 cup canned pineapple
A handful of oats
1/2 cup of ice, if desired

1. Everything goes in the blender in the order listed.
2. Start blending on low and increase speed until the smoothie reaches the desired consistency.

I could have added spinach to this instead of the oats. I small amount of celery would also be good. Be careful with celery in smoothies. It can overtake everything else very easily. No more than a three inch piece. And it can be hard on the blender. If you don’t have a high speed blender, you may want to skip it.

If you like a dairy-free smoothie, try some almond milk.
