I love smoothies, and this delicious one will take you straight to a colorful sunrise on your favorite beach.
Cara-Cara oranges are a small navel orange that is pink on the inside. If you can not find them; use pink grapefruit if you want a more tart flavor, more watermelon if you want a brighter pink, or regular oranges if you want the orange flavor and less pink color.
2 Cara-Cara oranges
2 regular oranges
(store bought orange juice can be used instead of fresh, 1/2 – 3/4 cup)
Fresh pineapple, cut into chunks, about 1/2 cup
3 large strawberries
Watermelon Juice, or fresh watermelon chunks, about 1/4 cup
Sliced and frozen banana (fresh works too)
For yellow layer:
Juice all four oranges and pour into blender.

Pour over yellow layers. Use spoon or straw to created swirled effect if desired.
