Skinny Summer Refreshment

Summertime and fruity drinks go together like a dessert bar and a fat girl. James and I found the most delicious drink at Coldstone of all places and no, it doesn't have ice cream in it. Its a dreamy blend of orange juice, pineapple, lemon juice, sugar and ice. Blended together its the perfect way to relax by the pool with a good book. It's healthy and oh-so good.

Here is the nitty gritty on the nutrition:

Citrus Dream Smoothie
Makes 3 servings

1 cup calcium enriched orange juice

Combine the orange juice and the pineapple in the blender and mix until the pineapple is smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
