SRC Orphan Rescue Post: Yummy Smoothie

Today is group B's reveal for the Secret Recipe Club. While I'm in group D, I noticed that there was a call out to rescue an orphan from Group B. Oftentimes I'm not able to do this because I either don't have time, or ingredients. But this time I decided to jump over and see if I could find something quick. 

I headed over to Janes Adventures in Dinner and found this yummy smoothie recipe. Check out her About me to find out more about this lady. She sounds fun. 

Our family loves smoothies and I'm always looking for new ones. We had actually decided to just have smoothies for dinner earlier today so I thought I'd see if she had any recipes I hadn't tried. SCORE! Found one. 

I apologize for the poor photo quality...we just got a new puppy and I was being rushed for the camera so my girls could take pics of puppy.
Berry Fruit Smoothie

1 c. pineapple (I suggest using fresh)
1/2 c. OJ 
3/4 c. yogurt (I used Kefir plain and peach mixed)
1 c. ice
1 c. blueberries

Combine all in blender and process till smooth. I often have frozen fruit so usually don't add ice. I didn't have yogurt other than plain greek, but did have Kefir which is so full of probiotics I opted to use this. I LOVED it! Tart and sweet all at the same time and you could mix and match the fruits you use or even add some spinach or kale (it will go unnoticed by your pickiest eaters).




With Joy UNquenchable,

  4. Hi Kirstin,
    You are always so sweet to jump in and help out. You have already got it made by the time I am reading the "help wanted" post. This smoothie looks awesome and very comforting for the day we have had. Great cooking with you in Group B.
