Pineapple, Banana and Orange Smoothie


This is the closest thing to sunshine in a bottle. Pineapple, orange and banana are all OK to eat if you have a sensitive gut as long as they are not over ripe. A breakfast smoothie is a great way to get some energy, liquid and fibre onboard first thing in the morning especially if you do not feel like eating cereals. To make this smoothie more filling you can add a teaspoon or two of lactose free yogurt. A pineapple can be cut up and stored in the fridge for up to a week. It can also be frozen in chunks and defrosted as required.

Serves 2

Ingredients 

·         160g pineapple

·         1 medium banana

·         1 orange, juice

·         200ml cool water

Method

Place the pineapple, banana and orange in a liquidiser and process for 30 seconds. Dilute with water and give the drink a final whizz. Pour into two glasses and enjoy this nutritious smoothie.

Tip

To prepare a pineapple: top and tail it and peel away the prickly skin. Cut lengthways into four. Remove the fibrous core from the long edge of each piece of pineapple.
