I have been on a bit of a smoothie kick in the last few weeks and I came up with this recipe myself.  I like to eat bananas when they are still a little green so when the black spots start to appear, they lose their appeal to me.  No pun intended!  Now when that happens, I just slice them and freeze the slices for later use in smoothies or ice cream.  No more wasted bananas!  I also bought two or three pineapples when they were on sale, chopped them, and froze the chopped pieces with the bananas.  Now when I want to make this smoothie, I don’t have to use ice and the fruit is ready to go.  Hope you enjoy!


1 cup plain unsweetened almond milk

1/8 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt

1 1/2 cups frozen pineapple chunks

1/4 cup frozen banana slices

1 tbsp. honey


Place all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.  This makes a delicious and filling breakfast drink.

1 cup frozen banana slices

1 tsp. creamy peanut butter


Put all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Easy peasy!
