Banana Berry Smoothie

Need a new breakfast idea?  Try this Banana Berry Smoothie-yumalicious!  

 

INGREDIENTS

3 frozen bananas (in small chunks)

1/2 cup milk (optional*)

1 cup vanilla yogurt *

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1 cup frozen strawberries

 

DIRECTIONS:

Combine bananas, milk and yogurt in a blender and blend on high until smooth.  Add berries and continue to blend until they are incorporated.  If using fresh berries, add a few icecubes to make it frosty.

The bananas provide natural sweetening, so we don’t add any other sweeteners.

Serve immediately.  Makes approximately (2) 8 oz. servings or (4) 4 oz. servings.

 

Note:   If you are unfamiliar with blending smoothies, make sure that you add liquid as necessary to maintain a vortex (the spinning hole in the center) while blending.  This prevents motor burn out in your blender.

*You can use coconut milk or yogurt to make this dairy-free.  You can also completely skip the dairy products and just add water or juice to thin it.
