Strawberry Pineapple Fruit Smoothie

It’s happening again, I am addicted to popsicles. In the last 24 hours I have consumed something like 15 popsicles. First it was the box of Sour Patch Kids popsicles then it was the Fla-vor Ice Pops that I hold very dear to my heart.

I have a problem.

Not only am I severely addicted; my popsicles are not freezing fast enough. Yes, I am eating them faster than they are freezing.

Oh boy.

The addiction is worse than I remember. I mean it is only the middle of April; I should not be this obsessed. I shiver all winter long and wear the heaviest clothes lest I turn blue AND it was in the 30s last night, yet I am downing popsicles like it is 85 degrees outside.

I’m doomed.

I give my box of 100 popsicles a week… MAX!

In order to offset my unhealthy addiction to popsicles, potato chips, macaroni and cheese and random beverages filled with sugar I thought I would make a fruit smoothie. I thought I would share it with you all today.

I happen to love smoothies, though I love slushes much more. Okay, I digress.

Today I have a fabulous Pineapple and Strawberry Smoothie. Prepare yourselves for the best tasting fruit smoothie you have ever had. {Period}

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup whole strawberries, stems removed
  • ¼ cup pineapple, cubed + a bit of the pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons French Vanilla Yogurt Fruit Dip
  • 2 tablespoons Cranberry & Concord Grape Juice
  • Whipped Cream {optional} 

Directions:

  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend for 30 seconds or until you reach your desired consistency
  • Pour into a glass. Garnish with a whole strawberry and a bit of whipped cream.
  • ENJOY!

You want the whipped cream, hands down. One of my favorite things to do is slice a hole in the middle of the strawberry and fill it with whipped cream. Seriously, it is my FAVORITE thing to do in the summertime. Sometimes I eat so much fruit during the day that I am stuffed when it is time to eat a real meal.

You should definitely go into your kitchen and make this smoothie!!

Until Next Time,

Happy Smoothie Makin’
