Recipe: Sunday Morning Smoothie

I buy way too much fruit. Often and repeatedly, because each time I think I'll eat it all before it goes bad even though I didn't the time before. Today, while staring sadly at the mountain of fruit in my fridge, I had an epiphany: smoothies! And since my lovely mama bought me a blender for Christmas (which I opened today), I could easily make one. This is my first smoothie ever, so feel free to share your tips! By the way, this one turned out very well - the flavor was mostly strawberry-pineapple.

I started by rinsing and cutting the tops off of 7 strawberries.

I peeled and set aside 2 tangerines.

I added 2 medium sized pieces of pineapple.

I added a splash of fruit juice.

I put it all in the blender, with the heaviest items on bottom.

I added two tablespoons of honey to sweeten it up.
Then blend! I couldn't tell you how long, just that it seemed about right.

Then, I added 1 cup of ice and blended for a long time. I checked halfway through and there were still chunks of ice, so I kept going.

When I was done, I had a delicious smoothie which I poured into my favorite vintage juice glass! This recipe yielded over 2 full glasses of fruity goodness. :)
