Very Berry Smoothie

April 27, 2010

Do you ever have a tough time getting 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day in?  Here’s a healthy way to knock off at least 3 a day.  Smoothies are simple for a quick breakfast or after working out, or a refreshing snack anytime.  I like my smoothie’s on the tart side while the rest of my family likes the sweet kind.  I use plain sugar free, fat free yogurt in mine to add protein, a smooth texture and tartness.  When I make them for the family I use sweetened flavored yogurt or extra bananas for sweetness.

Very Berry Smoothie

1 cup orange juice

1 cup mixed frozen berries

1 frozen banana in chunks

3 T. yogurt (any type you like)

Put all ingredients in blender and blend until mixed well (may need to help the blender out with a spoon but try not to do while it’s running to save your silverware).   This is a very thick smoothie if you want it thinner don’t freeze your banana.

Makes 1  16 oz.  smoothie
