Mixed Fruit Smoothie

img_8328

I’m not big into drinking smoothies.  I’ve tried a few and had yet found any that I’d liked.  I went to Starbucks and tried a sweet greens smoothie.  It was gross, tasted like liquid greens with a lot of sugar.  I like my greens savory not sweet.  I guess that’s what I should have expected, the drink was called sweet greens.  Then I went to Smoothie King and got some chocolate smoothie.  It tasted like chalk.  However, kept trying them thinking I just hadn’t found the right one.  Especially since so many people like them.  Then I decided to try making my own.  When I made my own with just some basic ingredients, they were really good.  I’ve only made a few different ones.  This one is better than any fruit smoothie I have ever bought.  I bought a big bag of frozen mixed fruit from Sams.  In the bag there was 6 separate bags of fruit.  The basic recipe is:

  • One small frozen bag of mixed fruit.  The mixed fruit had pineapple, strawberries, peaches, and mangos
  • One 8 oz can of pineapple juice
  • One cup of yogurt, whatever flavor you like.  I use either vanilla or strawberry
  • One cup of ice

This makes about 2 smoothies.  Its way too much for one.  I garnished it with some whipped topping.  I just really like how the whipped topping makes it look.  They say you eat with your eyes.  I hope you enjoy!
