Restaurant smoothies are large sized and are frequently made with ice cream, sherbet or frozen yogurt making them more like milk shakes than fruit smoothies.
This made-over smoothie replaces the high-calorie, high-fat ice cream and milk with low-fat (unfrozen) yogurt. Replacing sweetened pineapple with fresh or unsweetened canned pineapple lowers the calories and total sugars, making this a healthier smoothie.
Note: Although restaurant smoothies are generally very large, for comparison purposes, this traditional smoothie recipe is shown in four 1-cup serving sizes versus the traditional two 2-cup serving sizes.
In blender container, combine strawberries, pineapple, yogurt, and orange juice. Blend until smooth. Gradually add ice cubes with motor running; blend until smooth.
