Take a drink of this smoothie and try to not think about pink flamingos. Impossible, you say? Perhaps, but not as difficult as avoiding the image of a pink elephant.
Yield: 4 cups
1 cup raspberry juice
4 tablespoons frozen orange juice
1 cup filtered water
3 small bananas
2 tablespoons plain soy yogurt
1/4 cup firm tofu
10 fresh strawberries
1 cup peeled and chopped cantaloupe
1. Place all ingredients in a blender, and mix on medium speed for 40 seconds.
2. Pour into tall glasses (without thinking of a pink flamingo) and serve.
