Sunset Crush Smoothie

I went to the store yesterday and stocked up on tons of fruits and some veggies.  As soon as the kids got home from school yesterday, they both requested I make them some juice!  “Will I make you some juice?”  ABSOLUTELY!

I asked them last night what they would like in their morning smoothies.  My son requested something with watermelon and my daughter wanted something with blueberry.  I didn’t have much problem finding recipes for these fruits.  Here’s what I made him with watermelon.

Sunset Crush

1/2 pineapple (I used unsweetened frozen pineapple chunks for this and put them in the microwave for a minute to thaw them a little.  I probably used 3/4 cup-1 cup.)

2 thick slices watermelon

a dash of orange juice

This one was really good.  My son liked it a lot too.  I don’t know how the frozen fruits compare to the fresh as far as nutrients go, but here are the stars: 5 energy, 1 detox, 3 immunity, 3 digestion, 3 skin.

*Remember, this is a smoothie, meant for the blender.
