Pineapple Kiwi Lime Smoothie

A healthy version of kiwi lime pie is to blend these main ingredients into a smoothie. Then to further enrich this already amazing flavor and give your morning the needed zing, add pineapples and frozen bananas. Some Greek yogurt and the perfect balance of sweet and healthy has been achieved.

Ingredients

The amounts mentioned for below ingredients are estimates. Depending on your blender size and taste buds, you can either increase or decrease the portions. Do not worry about the fruit being super fresh. The origin of this smoothie is based on the left over fruit salad.

  • Pineapple – peeled and cut up into chunks for easier blending. About a cup and a half
  • Kiwi– peeled and cut in four. About 4 kiwis
  • Lime – you will need to squeeze the lime juice. I used about 4 small limes.
  • Banana – one frozen banana chopped up for easy blending. I am sure non frozen banana will be just as great.
  • Greek Yogurt – my favorite is FAGE Greek Yogurt 5%. Feel free to substitute. You will need about a cup
  • Water – just in case your smoothie is coming out too thick, you can add a bit of water to help with the blending

Step 1: Starting with your yogurt add all of these ingredients to your blender except limes.

Step 2: Hand squeeze your limes. Remove any pits, should they accidentally fall in.

Step 3: Select food processor option and blend away until smooth. You might need to stop and add some water and scrape the sides as you go.

Step 4: Once all of the ingredients are throughly blended up and your smoothie reached your desired consistency you are done.

Step 5: After you pour a glass, you can grate some of the lime skins directly into your drink to add lime zest. Top it with some mint leaves and enjoy.

If you prefer a sweeter taste you can add some honey.
