Fruit Smoothie Cupcakes

A flavorful blend of strawberry, banana, pineapple and orange all rolled into a cupcake.  Yum!!

I liked the fruity blend for the Mai Tai cupcakes, but I liked these even better.  Smoothies are delicious, and the different flavors being mixed together just hits all of your taste buds.  The icing is also a combination of pineapple, orange and strawberry, and with a little bit of cream cheese icing thrown in there as well.

Mix all ingredients well, using electric mixer, about 2-4 minutes.  Distribute evenly in lined cupcake pan (preferable using an ice cream scoop) and bake at 350 degrees for about 23-24 minutes.  Cool completely, then top with icing.
