Banana Berry Smoothie

My new thing lately is busting out my food processor and making a fruit smoothie for the hubs and I on the weekend. I finally made one we both really like. I am not a huge fruit fan (I love veggies) but I know they are good for me and this is the best way I enjoy them so far. This is a super healthy breakfast smoothie made with banana, berries, yogurt and milk. It goes great with eggs and toast for a healthy, well-rounded breakfast. This would be a perfect ‘treat’ for breakfast after a heavy day of Thanksgiving food. Hint, hint!

Banana Berry Smoothie

  • 2 bananas, sliced and then frozen
  • 1/2 pound frozen strawberries, blackberries and/or raspberries
  • 1/2 cup (1 small container) mixed berry Greek yogurt
  • 1ish cup of almond or low-fat milk

Blend your bananas until they become creamy and look like ice cream. Add berries and container of yogurt. Drizzle in as much milk as you need to get to the consistency you prefer. Serve immediately.

What I have found that works for me: buy the super old, beat up bananas that look like they are about to go bad. Come home, peel them and chop into pieces. Freeze two bananas in a container for future use. Either buy frozen fruit (no sugar added) or buy your own fruit when on sale and freeze it on a sheet tray and store about 1/2 pound in a container. This makes it easy to grab and blend as needed. Any flavor of yogurt goes – I liked mixed berry for obvious reasons but vanilla would also be fine. This is a great way to get your fruit quota in the colder months.
