Tropical Fruit Smoothie
By Chef Tom Fraker

Ingredients

Simple Syrup

1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 cup Water

Smoothie

1 1/2 cups Orange Juice
1 1/2 cups Vanilla Yogurt (low fat)
2 each Bananas peeled sliced and frozen
3 ounces Strawberries frozen
Simple Syrup to taste (2 Tbsp. sugar and 2 Tbsp. water)
3/4 cup Pineapple Sherbet

Directions

For the simple syrup:

Heat the sugar and water to a boil, without stirring.

Once it boils, remove from heat and let cool.

In a blender, combine all of the smoothie ingredients until smooth.

Serve in ice cold glasses.

Notes:

I like to add a dollop of whipped cream to the top with a sprinkle of Melissa's Dried Blueberries.
