Canned Fruit Smoothie

We love smoothies, but fresh fruit costs too much in the wintertime. Other than a case of oranges, we buy very little. In the summer we can rely on the garden. Coincidentally, I have put up plenty of jars of fruit that have been just sitting on the shelf. It finally dawned on me that there was a connection. This is the recipe I use now:



  • 1 quart of home-canned fruit
  • 1 pint of plain (homemade) yogurt
  • 1 cup to 2 cups crushed pineapple
  • honey to taste


Put everything in the blender and liquefy it. If you like a thicker smoothie, drain the syrup off the fruit before putting it in the blender. If you leave it in, you don't need as much honey.

Makes 6 cups. Serve cold. If you put the jar of fruit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours first, your smoothie will already be chilled.

You can up the nutrition by adding spinach to the smoothie--it will be green but you won't taste it because of all the fruit. Even my picky pants son will drink a green smoothie!

I have been doing this all winter long, except I use canned fruit, that I buy from the store (I have never canned food).I really don't know how. Weezy.
