Strawberry Orange Pineapple Smoothie: Leftovers

SmoothiesWhen I say leftover smoothie I mean a smoothie made with leftovers, not a smoothie that was not finished and then saved for later.  I should be more clear with my post titles…

This smoothie, as with all smoothies, is just dumped in a blender and whirred away!  Usually I think smoothie recipes are kind of silly.  They are a smoothie after all-the kind of meal that you just sort of figure out what you will put in it as you go along.  Unless, like in this case, the combo is maybe a bit different or it uses unexpected ingredients.  Right now, my Mom is experimenting with avocados in her smoothies (so goooood) so I will keep you posted on her discoveries.  But this one is fun because I decided to use my favorite flavors from the smoothie place at the mall.  I had some leftover fruit from making Pineapple Upside-Down Cake and immediately wanted to make this.  I am normally kind of a banana and berries kind of smoothie gal, and I honestly have no idea how I ended up ever ordering a smoothie with pineapple in it.  It was probably a mistake.  But it tastes so good, it is all I ever order anymore.  And bonus!  Zipping it up at home in my own blender is healthier and just as good!
SmoothiesThe bubble that formed at the top of this drives me crazy.  Just sayin’.
