Instructions

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into cups and enjoy!

Notes:

Add ice as needed to make cold, but usually if using frozen banana and pineapple it’s not needed. Frozen grapes can also make it better!

For additional nutritional benefits, try adding 1/4 cup cashews to the mix. This will also make it extra creamy.

Add water as needed to thin out smoothie. Depending on the type of blender and consistency preference the amount of liquid added will vary a bit. Just do what works for you!
