I recently bought a new Hamilton Beach blender, after my Magic Bullet died after only a couple of months of use. Seriously. I’m still really sore about that one. Hopefully this blender will last longer.
I was so excited when my new blender finally arrived, that I just had to put it to use. I gathered a few things I had around the house, and made a Strawberry Orange Pineapple Smoothie. It came out really delicious, and writing this post makes me wish I had enough ingredients left to make another one right now! It was so light and refreshing, and a perfect drink to sip on while Kayleigh was down for a nap. I sure do love those rare Mom breaks I get.
Strawberry Orange Pineapple Smoothie
1 cup ice cubes
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup simple syrup
1 tablespoon sweetened lime juice
Toss all ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy! Makes approximately 22 oz.
