This recipe makes four 12-ounce servings, and is best prepared in a high-powered blender such as a Vita-Mix. If a smaller blender is used, or you desire to make a smaller amount, we suggest that the recipe be cut in half.
It is also best to refrigerate the fruit several hours before preparing the Fruit Smoothie. To make the Smoothie even colder, the Banana could be peeled, cut into pieces and frozen.
Thoroughly wash the Pineapple. Cut into sections. Remove and discard the rind. Place the pineapple pieces in the blender.
Wash the peaches and remove the pits, and add fruit to the blender container. Add the peeled Banana and flaxseed. If the fruit is warm, we suggest adding 1 or 2 cups of ice.
Cover the blender and run at "high" until the flaxseeds are thoroughly blended into the Smoothie (about 1-minute). Serve in a tall glass with a straw, and enjoy.
A Fruit Smoothie also makes a great breakfast.
