We prepare this fruit smoothie recipe in our Vita-Mix high speed blender.  The recipe makes enough for four 12-ounce glasses.  For breakfast, we each will often have two full glasses of the fruit smoothie (it's a meal).  If you wish to make a smaller quantity, cut back the recipe proportionally.

Wash the pineapple.  Twist or cut off the stem end.  If using only half, cut the pineapple in half lengthwise and store unused portion in the refrigerator in plastic wrap or in a tightly sealed container.  Remove the skin from the portion you want to use, being careful to remove the brown tufts.  Cut the pineapple into chunks and place in the blender container.

Wash and remove the stems from the strawberries and place the strawberries in the blender container.

Peel and break the bananas into chunks and add to the blender.  Add the flaxseed (a good source of omega-3 fatty acids) and the ice.

Cover the blender container, and run at high speed until all the ingredients are smooth.  Work the fruit and ice into the cutter blades with the tamper wand as required.

Serve immediately in tall glasses and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
