Smoothies are my favorite!

So for christmas I wanted a blender! So my wonderful husband went out and found me the best blender he could find. So for Christmas I got a NINJA!! It is AMAZING!!! If you have a Costless Outlet nearby, I saw one for about $35... and it was a 3 piece, blender/processor set.

I want to share my smoothie recipe with you, so you can go make your own. I found I was spending $7 a cup on smoothies at Smoothie King and Planet. But the ones I make at home are just as good and actually fresh and not soaked in syrup.

Frozen Strawberries
Can of Crushed Pineapple
Apple Juice
Orange Sherbert or Mango Sorbet (or yogurt of your choice)

I make my batch for 2 adults and 2 kids, so its a pretty good bit. I put the bottom layer of strawberries to the 1 or 1 1/2 cup mark. Then I pour Apple Juice to the top of the strawberries. I then add 2 or 3 scoops (I use an ice cream scoop) of Pineapple. Then 2-3 scoops of sorbet/sherbert. I have needed to add ice unless I put too much juice. Just play with it because its tasty!
