Strawberry Orange and Pineapple Smoothie


What do Strawberries, Pineapple and Orange have in common. ?...
Well, they all taste great. What were you thinking. I know, you were thinking of the obvious..they are all loaded with vitamins(anti-oxidants) and minerals and fiber. That means they are really good for you too. So its a win-win situation. Also they are super easy to make and if you are pressed for time and need to snack on something real quick Smoothies is the way to go, atleast in my house.
I was reading a very interesting article. It marked December 29 as the day when people feel most guilty about giving into their indulgences over the last 12 months. Many felt that the day in the middle of the festive season i.e. four days after Christmas and three days before New Year was the ‘guiltiest’ time of the year. Read the entire article here.

So this gave me the idea for this guilt free indulgence(smoothie).

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup diced Strawberries
  • 1 Navel Orange peeled and diced
  • 1 cup diced Pineapple
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
*If you are using frozen Strawberries, then substitute ice for 1 cup of water or else smoothie will be too thick.

Preparation :

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Serve immediately. This recipe makes 2 to 3 servings.

  12. Dear Dolly
    LOL, the opening sentence is great! That reminds me the famous answer to the question " Why you climb Everest? Or why people climb Mountains? The most accepted answer so far was given by "George Mallory" and it is " Because it is there"...
    This is a great drink, must try it..Generally I dont eat fruits ( traditionally Bongs eat fruits when they are sick , in old times, why? well there is a geographical reason, we will discuss)
    But I love all kind of juice ( and Mango I can eat directly any time)
    I cant recollect, have I sent you a mail giving the countries I have visited? You wanted to know, but I can remember, if I sent
    Happy New year to you and family
