Pineapple-Banana Frappe

Chock full of potassium, and loaded with isoflavones, every glass of this Pineapple-Banana Frappe recipe makes your RealAge 3 days younger.

Preparation Time:  5 minutes
Cooking Time:  0 minutes
Servings  4
Serving Size:  8 ounce servings


2 large ripe bananas
1 cup 1% low fat soymilk
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1 cup pineapple-passion sorbet, such as Double Rainbow Gourmet (gluten-free)


Peel bananas; break into chunks. Combine all ingredients in blender container. Cover; blend until fairly smooth.


This is one time you won’t want to use fat free milk. The light milk gives a soft, roll-around-your-mouth feel that you’ll welcome. Add some soy protein powder for extra endurance until lunch.


1% low fat milk may replace the soymilk; 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple with its juice may replace the canned pineapple; and lemon sorbet may replace the pineapple-passion sorbet—you will get extra mouth puckering tanginess.
