Apple-Pineapple Smoothie

If you love sweet smoothies, keep reading. I’m not a fan of anything bitter, so when I came across Juice Generation’s Get Ur Green On juice it was pretty much a dream come true — it tastes like candy. Well, as much like candy as a bunch of fruit and veggies could, anyway. Keep trying, guys.

Unfortunately, those juices are about $10 each, so it’s definitely not an every day indulgence — more like a luxury. $10 for a burger makes sense, but I can’t really justify spending that much moolah on liquid that doesn’t involve alcohol. Instead, I came up with my own version.

This tastes amazing in juice form — I just hate cleaning my juicer. But after turning this recipe into a smoothie, I’m even more in love. And it’s not just because the clean-up takes 30 seconds.
