This simple smoothie recipe tastes great and is so easy. My 8-year-old daughter did this for a demonstration speech, and it was a big hit with her classmates. It is a filling snack for adults and kids.

Used frozen pineapple instead of juice and ice cubes. Plain yogurt a little vanilla extract and Splenda instead of sugar. Not much flavor. Would have been better with vanilla yogurt ( per the original recipe) and more pineapple. Read More

I changed the recipe a little because I like my smoothies thick. I also changed the servings to 5. I used a cup of greek strawberry yogurt and did not add the milk, and I used one 20oz can of pineapples in natural juice. The kids loved it and so did I. Read More

I changed it up just a tad. I had a large amout of fresh sliced pineapple, so I used pineapple in place of pineapple juice. I also used fresh strawberries in place of frozen and skipped the ice cubes as I am not an "icy" kinda smoothie person, I like it smooth and fresh. I have wheat germ, so I used it in my smoothies. It turned out excellent and I will make this again! Read More

What a great base recipe for smoothies! I used frozen fruit instead of adding the ice added about 3 TB of sugar instead of 2 and omitted the juice altogether (I like my smoothies thick and I found that it didn't really detract from the overall taste). Can't wait for summer - lounging out in the sun with my smoothie _ Read More

I thought this tasted like watered down yogurt but don't judge by me because I'm no smoothie lover to begin with. Judge instead by Hubs' report calling this more refreshing than most a "light" version if you will. A nice tart/sweet strawberry flavor but had I not told him there was pineapple juice in it he wouldn't have known. I asked him if he would have preferred this without the ice cubes and he said he would not - they are what made this particularly light and refreshingl Read More

This was so good! Not too icey like some smoothies. Instead of pineapple juice I used the crushed pineapple in juice..and I also threw in some coconut. My bf asked for a sip & made me make him his own smoothie. Read More
