Healthy Tropical Fruit Smoothies


Always happy to try another smoothie recipe.  I love that they can be whipped up in no time, consumed on the go, and it's a healthy way to begin, or end, the day!

Thanks to Jessica at Oregon Transplant for sharing this with us at a recent Weekend Potluck.  I added a little flax seed meal and some grated carrot also. 


HEALTHY TROPICAL FRUIT SMOOTHIES 

1 cup pineapple, chunked (crushed would work too) 
1 orange, peeled in sections
2 frozen sliced bananas
1 c. orange juice
1 (8 oz) pineapple (or tropical) Greek yogurt 
1 Tb.  coconut oil
2 tsp. flax seed meal, optional
(It helps you stay full longer)
about 1/3 c. grated carrot, optional


Yield: 2 servings 

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, about a minute. If you want a thinner consistency, you can add more orange juice, milk or water. Pour into 2 glasses, serve immediately.
