Banana Berry Smoothie! Delicious Nutrition!
You can come up with all kinds of custom smoothies, depending on what fruits you have available. Try adding even more protein and fiber with flax meal, wheat germ, or protein powder. You can even add peanut butter! It's completely your own designer smoothie!
Whenever you have fresh fruit that you can't use up, chunk it up and freeze it! You will be very grateful when the time comes to whip up a delicious meal in just a matter of seconds!
BANANA BERRY SMOOTHIE!
1 frozen banana, in chunks (3 to 4 2-inch chunks)
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
4 frozen strawberries (or 4 large fresh)
1/2 to 1 cup Greek yogurt, vanilla (or your favorite yogurt)
1/4 cup milk, skim to whole, your preference
In blender, pour milk. Add yogurt, then fruit. With cover on securely, mix well, and blend until completely smooth. If it's too thick, you can add more milk, a few tablespoons at a time.
Pour into a tall glass, spritz with whipped cream, and drink through a straw.
