I’m not sure if it was just me, but this winter seemed extra long! I’m so happy to finally see the snow melt and the warmer temperatures come our way. While many people were lucky enough to get away over the winter months, to enjoy some sun and sand, many of us were here enduring the snow and cold. While the temperature outside is a little warmer we are still being hit with some winter weather. Tomorrow morning, or anytime in the next couple of weeks, try making this yummy “Sunny Hawaiian Smoothie” it will take you to the sunny south that you’ve been dreaming of all winter long….and it’s perfect for Spring!
- 1 cup of 100% orange juice
- 1 can (10oz) of crushed pineapple with juice
- 2 med. bananas
- 1 8oz. carton plain or vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup ice
Add the ice, pineapple, and bananas in a blender; process until smooth. Add the orange juice and yogurt and blend. Pour into cups. Serve immediately. You can garnish the side of the glass with a pineapple slice for decoration. Enjoy!
