A Refreshing Sip!

pineappleToday I want to make a post about a smoothie that is just easy and made up on the spot. This heat wave most definitely requires a nice cold smoothie so I want to make a smoothie that helps make the heat bearable. This smoothie is not made from all fresh fruit (which for some, may be a down side) but I still think it will be delicious. For a cold smoothie, I really like using Dole, 100% juice (the pineapple juice). This is a frozen juice made by dole but by putting this into your smoothie, it always adds a fresh and fruity boost where you can’t go wrong with it. I highly recommend frozen fruit in this hot weather. It always cools you down and makes a tasty drink as well. If you prefer the organic frozen fruit, your best bet would be at whole foods. All right, I think I have said enough about the frozen fruit so let’s get started by making a cold and refreshing smoothie!

Ingredients:

Dole Pineapple juice, 100% juice

Water

3 tblsp Frozen or fresh papaya chunks

1tablespoon sugar

1 banana

5 ice cubes

½ cup coconut juice (optional)

Now, in order to get started, mix the frozen juice with water until it tastes and looks like normal juice. Place all the fruit in the blender (banana, pineapple chunks) then place the sugar and ice cubes in. Now poor the pineapple juice that you just made into the blender and put just enough so that it is level with the rest of the ingredients. You can also put some coconut juice in if you like! Now blend it all up until smooth! Serve and enjoy!
