Pineapple Smoothie

Aaaah, St. Lucia, Jamaica – that’s what this makes me think of! Smoothies are a delicious and healthy breakfast option. The original recipe is from Williams Sonoma…I’m starting to think they should pay me to be their official recipe tester or something ;) I made these two mornings in a row, once following their recipe and once with my changes. I have to say, my way tasted MUCH better. I used vanilla yogurt instead of plain, and instead of using not-frozen pineapple and frozen banana I used frozen pineapple and not-frozen banana. (Get that?) Also, I like to put the ice into the blender before the rest of the ingredients and crush it on its own so there are no chunks in the smoothie. I especially love this because it’s a great excuse to buy a whole pineapple and then you have lots of leftover fruit to have as a snack for days.

    I just made this smoothie for my family… It is SO good! And healthy too! I used agave instead of the sugar, and it tastes wonderful. Thanks!
