Delicious Smoothies....

Thought you had to spend $5 and go to Jamba Juice or Juice It UP or one of the many other smoothie places popping up??? THINK AGAIN! Grab your blender and try out the following:

3/4c. plain non-fat yogurt
8-10 drops of liquid stevia or a packet or two (plant derived natural sweetner!){Find at Trader Joe's or Henry's} (or use Honey, about 1-2 Tbsp)
4 oz. Juice (Orange, Pineapple, Apple, or a 100 % juice)
2 bananas
12 oz. frozen pineapple (great tip - buy canned in pineapple juice, dump in a baggie and freeze)
1/2 c. frozen strawberries

Mix all put last two ingredients - when combined open and place pineapple in, blend - when well blended - drop strawberries in as they will act like ice cubes and start freezing and thickening the drink - mix really well. Enjoy!! :)
This recipe is just like the 'Aloha Pineapple' or " Pineapple Punch" drinks at Juice It Up - so good and good for YOU!
