Blueberry, Banana, Pineapple Smoothie

Hello. My name is Heidi.... and I am in LOVE with the Magic Bullet. I will admit it, and I am not ashamed. I use it at least twice a day. If you do not own one you must go directly to Wal-mart and purchase one immediately. This is seriously the best kitchen gadget I have ever owned. My beautiful red blender has been packed away because it could never blend a smoothie as creamy as the Magic Bullet. I have to hide to eat them because my children follow me like little birds with their mouths open for a bite. You can use any fruit you like. At the moment this is my favorite.

2 bananas, sliced and frozen
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
2 pineapple slices
1/8- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 drops coconut extract
sweetener or sugar to taste

Place all in the magic bullet (or a blender if you must) making sure the pineapple on the top (or bottom if you are using a blender... you want it closest to the blade) . Blend until smooth. You can add more juice or some water if it is to thick.

Oh my, this looks delish! We love smoothies at our house, but I have never thought to combine pineapple and blueberry. Yum!
