Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Freeze banana pieces in a resealable freezer bag about 4 hours or until frozen.

  • In a blender combine frozen banana and frozen fruit blend. Add yogurt and 3/4 cup of the tropical drink. Cover and blend until smooth, adding more tropical drink as needed to reach desired consistency. Divide mixture among four glasses. If desired, garnish each serving with a pineapple wedge.


Test Kitchen Tip: For single serving smoothies, prepare recipe and freeze in individual portions. Let individual portions stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving, stirring occasionally after mixture begins to thaw.
