Sunshine Smoothie Recipe

Sunshine Smoothie Recipe

The cheerful color and sprightly flavor of this smoothie gives the morning meal a welcome boost.

Antioxidant citrus and pineapple juices combined with bananas, so rich in potassium and phosphorus, are a lovely way to welcome in the bright sunshine and warmer weather of spring.

2 ripe bananas, broken into several pieces
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup orange juice, preferably freshly squeezed
1 cup lemon or orange low-fat yogurt or soy yogurt

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

Serves 2 to 3.
