Strawberry- Pineapple Smoothie

We decided to have Smoothies for dinner so we searched for a new recipe.  I found a Strawberry-Pineapple smoothie in and then we tweaked it a little bit and doubled the amounts so this is the DOUBLED RECIPE.  

    • 2 cups frozen strawberries
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup of coconut milk
    • 1-1/2 cups pineapple juice
    • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
    • 1/4 cup white sugar
    • 12 ice cubes

    • Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth
    (the original recipe did not have any coconut milk but rather, 1 1/2 cups milk)
    Also, we accidentally left out the sugar but it was really good without it so I'm not sure if I want to really try it with the sugar next time or rather just enjoy the less sweet version.  

 We bought the 6 pack of little cans of pineapple juice, even thought it's a little more expensive, so we would be able to enjoy the remaining juice at our own pace rather than have to hurry to drink it before it spoils.

  • Here is what our doubled version made in total.  The plastic bottle is about 20 fl oz and the glasses, about 16 each.  
  • The glass alone wasn't quite enough to hold us so we had some toast and jelly to make it a more filling meal.
