    Very delish! I do like my smoothies a little thinner so did add some almond milk that went perfectly with it. So easy and the flavors perfect together. Thanks Diana!

    Amazing smoothie! Very rich in flavor! Definitely goes with the name pineapple sunrise. I used 1 tablespoon of honey instead of sugar. Amazing!

    I have been trying to eat more fruits and vegetables, along with eliminating most dairy products, so when I searched for a smoothie recipe to try, this looked like it was a good fit, even though pineapple is not one of my favorite fruits. When I made it, I doubled the recipe to have enough servings for all of us, and cut back on the sugar (used 3 tablespoons), but I think next time I would eliminate the sugar completely. I really liked the blend of the pineapple, banana and raspberry flavors.

    Wow! These smoothies taste awesome! Instead of a rich dessert, my family and I enjoy these fruit filled smoothies.
