This sunshine in a glass Pineapple, Mango and Orange Smoothie is refreshing, filling, loaded with vitamins and can be ready in less than 5 minutes.
We’re having yet another cloudy and rainy day here, and I’m really in the need of some serious sunshine. I decided the best way to get it would be to create it in a drink. So after looking in the freezer and finding some frozen pineapple and mango chunks, I decided to make a Pineapple, Mango and Orange Juice Smoothie. So delicious and refreshing!
This smoothie is healthy, filling, and provides you with a good dose of vitamins. Smoothies are a great way to make use of seasonal fruit and veggies. You can use fresh or frozen fruit, just open your refrigerator or freezer and take a look at what you have. You can create so many different variations depending on what you have on hand. I actually prefer the texture of smoothies when I use frozen fruit. It makes it so thick and creamy, it feels like you are having a frozen treat! So next time you chop up a fresh pineapple, remember to put some away in the freezer, you’ll be glad you did when you search your freezer for your next smoothie ingredients. Enjoy!
