This week we went to Wal-Mart for our regular grocery shopping, and I found strawberries were on sale around 1.70 dollars for a box. I love strawberries, and have a weakness to them, so I bought it. My hubby mentioned that they may ready to spoil, that’s why these are on sale, and you have to use it immediately otherwise it is waste of money. I promised him I will use it immediately. When I came home and open the box no wonder some are spoiled so in order to save the rest of them I use some of them in the salad. I also had some oranges and a pineapple sitting on the kitchen table. I made carrot pineapple cake and still had some pineapple leftover. I asked dear hubby can I use them in a curry and his response was a strong no, do something else with them.
I decided to make a smoothie combining strawberry, orange and pineapple. While searching on my Google friend I found that Strawberries are the most favorite candidate of smoothies because of their tasty flavor and ability to mix with other fruits. Adding additional ingredients will not ruin the taste of strawberries smoothies. Incorporating orange in the smoothies will enhance flavor. Also they are rich in vitamin C. Then comes my dear pineapple they offer unique sweet and tangy taste. Usually adding pineapples brings out other flavors rather than taking over. Further Pineapples are rich in Vitamin C, omega-3 fatty acids, beta carotene and other nutrients as well. Pineapples also contain brome lain which has is anti-inflammatory and may decrease blood clotting as well.

Satisfied with finding many good things about strawberry, orange and pineapple I decide to use them in my healthy smoothie with total confidence. I used 1 % milk to reduce the fat content. Really tasty, creamy, even my little one enjoyed having her first taste of pineapple, orange and strawberry combo.

What you need

Chopped pineapple: 1 cup
Strawberry: 7 no
Orange juice: Juice of two orange (½ cup)
Milk: ¼ cup (I used 1%)
Sugar: 3 teaspoon

How I made

Combine orange juice, pineapple and strawberries, milk and sugar in a blender; cover and blend until creamy. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

Preparation time:10 minutes
Yield: 2
Verdict: Yummy
Will you make it again: Yes I will
