More Snow!

We had a sudden wet snow that stuck to the trees and made them really beautiful for about half a day. The trees are already budding so it was unusual to see snow on them and snow on the Praying Hands at ORU.

Smoothie RECIPE

I'm on a smoothie kick right now. I've had one almost every day for a week now. Here is my current homemade concoction:

Pineapple-Banana Smoothie

6 oz pineapple juice (I found Dole 100% Pineapple Juice in 6 oz cans)
6 oz vanilla yogurt (I like Yoplait Light Fat-Free "Very Vanilla" Yogurt)
1 banana
4 ice cubes (I use cubes from those typical sized ice trays)

Throw everything in a blender and blend until the ice is crushed (it only takes about 10 seconds on the Ice Crush setting on my blender).

Makes approximately 20 oz and is approximately 300 calories.

Or, to make 2 servings I like to make it a....

Pineapple-Orange-Banana Smoothie

6 oz pineapple juice
6 oz orange juice
12 oz vanilla yogurt
2 bananas
8 ice cubes
