Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Smoothie Recipe

Hola Amigos, It's been a while since I made a smoothie! Well why not celebrate our Nation's Birthday with one classic dessert favorite by lots of people! Pineapple Upside-Down Cake! but you guys know I'm no baker...so before having a disaster of " I never want to see my oven again" proportions, let's play it safe with a smoothie.
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Smoothie

3/4 Cup Fresh Pineapple, frozen
1/2 Cup Vanilla Rice Milk, chilled
1/4 Pineapple Juice, chilled
1 (6oz) container Pineapple Yogurt, Frozen
1/2 tsps Vanilla Butter Extract 
Caramel topping (optional) 
whip cream (optional)

Put the first 5 ingredients on a blender and blend until smooth, if want at this point you could add some sugar or a sweetener of your liking.
Cherry Sauce
1/2 Pd Cherries Pitted and cut in half
1/2  blood orange juice (or orange, I just had the Red oj handy)
2 TBSP Agave Vanilla Sweetener

In a heavy saucepan put the cherries, juice and sweetener and heat up on medium to low heat for 10 minutes until cherries are soft and the sauce starts to caramelized.
Remove from heat and when is cool enough to the touch, put this mix into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. 
To serve

Pour some of your cherry sauce at the bottom of your drinking glass, slowly pour the smoothie mix on the side of glass, Top it off with pineapples, cherries, whip cream and caramel!
Serves 2 (8oz) glasses
Pineapple Upside-Down Smoothie Recipe, the sweet taste of the classic cake without spending hours in the kitchen or baking! Have a straw and your favorite shades and enjoy paradise with this delicious smoothie!

Listo!
I believe you can find all the elements you love about your pineapple upside-down cake here. The vanilla buttery taste of the cake, the cherry (not maraschino you guys know I can't stand the stuff) and a little caramel not from brown sugar, but caramel after all!

Stir and enjoy this combination of flavors!

I think is even low in calories since instead of sugar I used Agave and Rice Milk!

Thank You for sharing this treat with me! I hope you turn it around and create your own special smoothie cake recipe soon!

Remember anything you serve to celebrate among family and friends tastes better with a Pinch of Love!
Have a great weekend!
