Mixed fruit juice smoothie

Here is a great use for all the juice you drain off of canned or bottled fruit. I put it in ice cube trays and freeze it. Once it is frozen, I move it to a gallon ziplock bag. When we are ready to make a "Jamba Juice" style smoothie we fill the blender 2/3 of the way up with frozen juice cubes and then add a spoonful of homemade yogurt and some additional fruit juice that has not been frozen. Add a little powdered sugar or honey to sweeten your smoothie, if needed. You can also add fresh or frozen fruit such as bananas, berries, peaches, etc. Be creative and mix and match flavors - we've never had one we didn't like. 

They are especially great for summer time since they are slushy and cold - my boys always fight over who gets the last drop!
