berry pineapple smoothie

i'm a smoothie kind of gal. i would take it [any day] over pop or juice. it's a healthy & easy breakfast or snack beverage that fills me up right away. and it's quick to prepare. i use frozen fruits, milk, yogurt & my very reliable single serve blender.

ingredients for one serving:
1/8 cup blueberries
2 pieces strawberries
1/2 cup pineapples
1 tsp lemon juice
3 tbsp non-fat vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup skim milk
dash of ground ginger (optional)
1. place fruits, lemon & ginger in the cup. add yogurt & milk. [reduce milk to half a cup for a thicker smoothie.]
2. blend for about 30 seconds or until smooth. [my trick for an icy smoothie, chill in the freezer for about 30 minutes.]

refreshing! i know it's still winter but nothing can stop me from enjoying this treat everyday.
