Love and Confections: Strawberry, Pineapple and Banana Smoothie

Strawberry, Pineapple and Banana Smoothie

A few of my Food Blogging Friends have posted some great looking smoothies recently and it totally got me in the smoothie mood. I hadn't made any since Baby L&C was born because I didn't know how she would react to a blender - turns out that kid can sleep through anything: vacuum, blender, people upstairs who sound like a herd of elephants...

The Lemon Bowl's Chocolate Espresso Protein Smoothie and Aggie's Kitchen's Fruity Kefir Smoothie had me wanting to whip up and slurp down a cold, refreshing smoothie. I hadn't planned ahead for smoothie-making, so I was lucky that I had a few ingredients on hand. Next time I make a trip to the store I am definitely going to get some great produce for smoothies!

a Love and Confections original

Strawberry, Pineapple and Banana Smoothie Ingredients:
 - 1/4 cup Pear Juice (any juice will work)
 - 100 grams fresh Pineapple
 - 100 grams Strawberries (if using frozen let them thaw)
 - 1 very ripe Banana
 - Ice (optional)

Strawberry, Pineapple and Banana Smoothie Directions:
 - Place ingredients in blender, and blend until smooth. I did not use ice because I didn't want to chance waking up the baby. My blender is pretty loud with ice and doesn't crush it all the way.
 - Pour into a glass with a fun straw and enjoy!

Until next time,
