orangebananapineapple juice

It is dee-lish. And good for you! This recipe is great for two big people and one small person or three small people and one big person.

In a blender combine:
1 or 2 bananas, depending on how much banana you like
2-3 c. orange juice
a handful (half cup?) of sliced pineapple (or one teaspoon of honey)
1-2 Tbsp. ground flax seed, depending on how much you want to chew your juice

Blend until combined and then blend just a bit longer so the juice is nice and frothy. So good.

I just realized that I gave that recipe just like my Mom usually gives recipes. ("Oh, you know, until the dough looks right.") With fruit juices, whatever fruit you like best dictates proportions in the recipe. It shouldn't even be called a recipe, really. It should just be called "Throw Some Fruit in a Blender and If You Don't Like It This Time, Do Something Different Next Time." But I have found that adding ground flax seed is a yummy texture.

That sounds good!
I never heard of juice being chewy before though. MaryGrace
