Strawberry, Banana and Pineapple Smoothie

I don't have any problems eating my veggies, but I don't eat a lot of fruit in the Fall, Winter and Spring months (unless Diet Mountain Dew with Strawberry Puree from my favorite drink stop counts as my daily serving of fruit).  I do drink a lot of those ;)  

So, a smoothie is the perfect way for me to get a lot of fruit in a single serving.  This recipe makes a thick and creamy smoothie.  If you want it to be a little less thick, you could always cut back and add only one frozen banana.  The banana flavor does stand out, but this does have a slight strawberry flavor and a hint of pineapple.

I used my food processor to blend this all together, but I think a powerful blender would work as well.  Some day I need to get me one of those.  

What ingredients do you like to add to smoothies???
