We all love our smoothies, whether its from the smoothie place down the street, or the grocery store ones. We all know those aren't the healthiest and the ingredients aren't always what they seem. So nothing beats a homemade smoothie with simple ingredients and a blender. This recipe is one of my favorites and I love to make it in the morning as a "pick me up".
- One Whole Banana, Sliced
- 1 Cup Frozen Mixed Berries
- 1 Cup Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt
- 1 Cup Non-Sweet Almond Milk (Can be substituted for milk, soy milk, or sweet almond milk)
- 1 Cup Simply Orange Juice
After you have the ingredients and your blender ready, all you are going to need to do is add all the ingredients into the blender. I like to add all the solid ingredients, then the yogurt and then the liquids. Once all the ingredients are placed into the blender, you then blend. If your blender has a smoothie setting, use that, if not start with the lowest setting, working your way up to the highest setting. This will insure a well blended drink and no harsh pieces from the mixed berries.
Once the smoothie is at the consistancy that you prefer, add the mixture to a glass and enjoy!
Enjoy and share your smoothie recipes! I would love to try some of yours! :)
