Banana-Pineapple Smoothie

Banana-pineapple smoothie

With the dearth of fruits in winter, bananas and pineapple are a good standby. Both fruits are rich in  vitamins and minerals, and their flavors are quite companionable. The optional coconut yogurt makes a thicker, richer-tasting smoothie.

Serves: 2 to 3

  • 1 large ripe banana, broken into several pieces
  • 1 cup orange juice, preferably fresh
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks, preferably fresh
  • One 6-ounce container vanilla coconut yogurt, optional
  • 1/2 cup vanilla nondairy milk
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons your favorite superfood (hemp
    or chia seeds, pea protein, etc.)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and process until smoothly pureed. Or place in a container and process with an immersion blender. Serve at once in tall glasses.
