Indigo Smoothie: A Quick Recipe

It's hot here in western Montana! Biking through my round of errands yesterday left me sweaty, thirsty, and a not a little crispy with sunburn. This quick and surprisingly purple tropical smoothie hit the spot perfectly!

Indigo Smoothie

1/2 cup diced canned, unsweetened pineapple
1/4 cup pineapple juice (from the can of pineapple)
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup frozen blueberries (fresh is great as well -- use what you've got on hand!)
1-2 handfuls ice cubes (according to how textured, cold, and fluffy you like your smoothies)
1 tsp frozen orange juice concentrate (or 1/4 cup orange juice)
2 T lime juice (or more to taste)

Blend until smooth. If you'd like a little more substance, try adding 1/4 cup of skim milk or vanilla yogurt, or perhaps half of a banana. Be sure to drink your smoothie from a glass so as to better delight in its vivid color!
