This Banana Berry Smoothie is one of our faves. Enjoy!
Mornings can be hectic, but smoothies are a quick, healthy alternative for breakfast and this Banana Berry Smoothie is one of our favorite versions.
3 frozen bananas (in small chunks)
1/2 cup milk (optional*)
1 cup vanilla yogurt *
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
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’re 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 burnout 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.
