Strawberry Banana Pineapple Smoothie for the Summer Heat!

This smoothie does the trick when it is 113 degrees outside!

It is the heat of the day and it is HOT!  Sunday it was a searing 116 degrees!  This is hot even in Arizona.  I miss the Northwest!!I will even take some rain and wind right now.  This is my “stand by” smoothie.  It is filling so it is great for a morning healthy breakfast or an afternoon snack.  I use soy milk and honey (from the bear) to sweeten it up.

Strawberry Banana Pineapple Smoothie

This Smoothie is so good and on super hot days like today it cools you down!   Now for the stuff about “Why” you should drink this:  Strawberries are great for cleansing and detoxification, according to the book  Juices & Smoothies by Suzannah Oliver and Joanna Farrow.  It also points out Bananas are very good energy boosters!  Who doesn’t need that in the middle of the day? Now with Pineapple,  the enzymes help clear the blood and break down clots and is thought to relieve arthritis and may reduce back pain.  Pineapple also help “cleanup” the digestive track which is the best part of all!  This is what I throw in the blender:

Strawberry Banana Pineapple Smoothie

1 Banana
5 Strawberries
hand full of Pineapple chunks with some Juice
1/2 cup soy milk
4 ice cubes
1 1/2 tbsp Honey
Put all of the ingredients in the blender and turn on high until well blended and pour into large glass.

By the Glass!
