Foodie Friday -- Fruit Tornados!

Fruit whats?  They are really fruit smoothies, but when my daughter watched me make it the first time she said it looked like a fruit tornado in the blender, and the name stuck.  :)

These are super delicious and healthy.  I promise you and your kids will love it!

Fruit Tornados

-1 20 oz. can of pineapple chunks (in unsweetened pineapple juice)
-1 frozen banana (you don't have to use frozen, but we always do)
-2 or so cups of frozen strawberries
  1. Dump can of pineapple with juice into the blender with frozen banana broken into chunks.  Pulse a few times to break up the banana.  Then blend until smooth.
  2. Add 1 cup of strawberries and pulse until broken up.  Blend until smooth.
  3. Add a few strawberries at a time pulsing and blending until you get to a thick smoothie consistancy.
  4. Pour in a cup, add a staw and enjoy!

We had these for breakfast with these bran muffins.  What a healthy and super tasty breakfast.  We also have fruit tornados for snacks and for dessert after dinner sometimes.
