Berry Banana Smoothie Recipe

Berry Banana Smoothie Recipe

It has been another crazy week for me. I was out of town for work and now I am very behind in life. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever catch up. I hope to make progress this weekend, but I also want to play. It is finally supposed to be sunny in Utah and I can’t wait.

Fridays are my day off from work. To celebrate, I like to treat myself to a fruit smoothie. I usually start my Fridays with Body Pump or Body Combat. After class, I blend up a refreshing smoothie. Smoothies are a great post workout treat.

I use our homemade yogurt as the base and throw in whatever fruits we have on hand. When fruit is on sale, I buy extra so I can freeze some for smoothies. I like using frozen fruit because it makes the smoothie thicker. You can use fresh fruit, just throw in some ice cubes to thicken it up.

For this smoothie, I used frozen blueberries, banana, and strawberries. I always add a splash of skim or soy milk to help the blender do it’s work. This breakfast treat blends up in no time.¬† Sometimes I make a double batch and keep half of it in the freezer. When I am in a rush, I pull the smoothie out of the freezer and let it defrost while I get ready. I grab my smoothie and a straw on my way out the door and enjoy a healthy breakfast without any fuss.

This smoothie is very berrylicious! Make it for breakfast, a snack, or even enjoy it for dessert.

Berry Banana Smoothie

Yield: Serves 1

Ingredients:

1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I use our homemade yogurt)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 frozen banana
5 frozen strawberries
Splash of skim or soy milk

Directions:

1. Add the yogurt, blueberries, banana, and strawberries into the blender. If you aren't using frozen fruit, throw in a couple of ice cubes.
2. Add in a splash of skim or soy milk. Place the blender lid on tightly. Puree smoothie until it is smooth and creamy. I like my smoothies thick, if you prefer a thinner smoothie, add more milk and puree for a little longer.
3. Enjoy!

    Sounds wonderful! I’ve just started mixing smoothies again after a long stint without them. Used to make them daily and got out of the habit.

    I feel like I am ALWAYS trying to catch up on life. Does it ever happen? Sigh.

    I make smoothies just like you do! I love using Silk, berries, and yogurt. If I feel a little indulgent, I’ll use chocolate Silk, a frozen banana, yogurt, and pb!

    Oh, that looks so good! I am always looking for new smoothies to add to post-workout routine. I bought some protein powder to throw in and it has made a world of difference in how I feel after working out. My husband makes so much fun of me- I think he thinks I am going to turn into the Hulk or something :) I can’t wait to try this recipe! Thank you so much for your comment today- it made my day!!

    I put the same ingredients into a smoothie for my kids to give them a nice protein boost before school. What a great idea to freeze the banana! I’m on it!

    Most of us are pretty much in your situation. I even have a hard time keeping up with all my research projects.

    I haven’t made smoothie yet. Looks very delicious!

    I freeze my yogurt wen I find it on sale and then there is no need to add ice cubes if you don’t want it watered down.

    Almond milk would make a good replacement for dairy or soy milk. Tastier and healthier for those of us who are sensitive to soy and dairy. Adding 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of cardamom would really make these flavors pop.

    I made it doubling up on everything and using Fage 2% greek yogurt and pureeing for three minutes. Unfortunately, it came out with too much of a plain yogurt taste. I might suggest usig only 3/4 of the called for yogurt, although it may be less frothy, it would have a stronger fruit taste.
