Strawberry Smoothies

19 Jul

Strawberry Smoothie

  • 2 cups of frozen strawberries
  • one (ripe) banana, peeled
  • 1/2 cup of strawberry or vanilla yogurt
  • 3 cups of milk
  • a blender

Place the frozen strawberries in the blender first.  This is because the frozen strawberries are the hardest item to blend and therefore should be closest to the blade.  Break up the banana into thirds and place into the blender.  Add the yogurt and milk.  Blend and mix once with a spoon between blending.  Serve with a straw since the smoothie can be quite thick.

This recipe makes two large drinks or four small ones and goes well with a breakfast meal or as a snack.   You can also substitute the strawberries with frozen mangos, peaches, raspberries or blueberries.
