Fruit Smoothies

Pineapple-banana smoothie
It finally happened to me...I'm officially addicted to smoothies! I was looking for something filling for breakfast because I wasn't enjoying my hot oatmeal during the summer months. I bought a KitchenAid blender (that I love) and knew I would end up using it to make something delicious! This led me to my current smoothie experiments and they are simply awesome! These are my 3 favorite smoothies (so far): pineapple-banana, banana-vanilla and peach-vanilla bean. 
So try something new and let us know your favorite fruit smoothie ideas!

Pineapple-banana directions:
1 cup V8 Splash Smoothie juice (tropical colada)
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 banana, peeled
1 cup crushed ice
1/2 tsp coconut extract
Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.

Banana Vanilla Smoothie


Banana-vanilla directions:
1 banana, peeled (fairly ripe)
1/2 c vanilla soy milk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 c vanilla yogurt
1/2 vanilla bean, scraped insides
1/2 c crushed ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
Peach Vanilla Bean Smoothie
2 peaches, fresh and sliced (I left the peeling on)
1/2 c vanilla yogurt
1/2 c 1% organic milk (or any milk of your choice)
1/2 vanilla bean, sliced down the middle and the insides scraped
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c crushed ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.

Enjoy a blessed July 4th holiday as we thank those men and women that have made our freedom possible!

Love and peace,
