Sweet and Sour Smoothie

We've been making smoothies for years.  This is my all-time favorite!

Blend together:

1/2 frozen banana, sliced
4 large frozen strawberries
1 cup pineapple juice (or whatever juice you have--we use cranberry raspberry a lot)
2 T. vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup limeade frozen concentrate (just chop a big chunk off the top)
couple squirts lemon juice
1 scoop protein powder (vanilla flavored)

Then add lots of ice!

Blend and serve.

My kids call these "slushie drinks." They are a yummy, healthy treat. Also a filling drink to have for summer breakfasts.

(Just a tip: cut your bananas up into slices, put them in a plastic baggie, then put them in the freezer. Then you have them ready to pop into your smoothies every time you make them. This really comes in handy if you made them often.  You could throw in some almonds, or even a small scoop of oatmeal.)


  1. I'm going to have to give this a try. Lexi and I aren't big breakfast eaters, and this would be perfect for us...

  2. I LOVE smoothies--can't wait to try this one!!!

  3. Dusty--Isabel and I like to have them for breakfast on busy dance days.
