Fresh fruit can be used, but the smoothie will not be as thick. Low–fat or non-fat plain yogurt can also be used. Simply add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to the mixture. For extra flavor, add a sliced banana. Canned, drained sliced beets can also be used in this recipe; or frozen beets, if available.
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup low-fat or non-fat vanilla yogurt
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup fresh, sliced beets, cooked
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers within 2 hours.
