Strawberry Blueberry and Banana Smoothies

I promised my sister, Chris, I would post this months ago.  It is my favorite breakfast although it would make a great snack any time of day.  I sometimes switch up the fruit depending on what I have on hand but no matter what combination of fruit I use it makes for a great way to start the day. I think the combination of strawberries and blueberries are may favorite by far but don’t be afraid to experiment.

  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup of cran-grape juice
  • 8-10 ice cubes
  • 1 banana
  • 2/3 cup of greek yogurt – unflavored Chobani works great

I like to put the strawberries, blueberries, juice and ice in the blender first and blend until ice is completely chopped.  Then add the banana and yogurt and mix well.  Makes two awesome smoothies; and if you only need one you can always freeze the extra into popsicles for later!

Don’t hesitate to experiment;  pears, peaches, oranges, and cherries all work great too ~ you can add as many fruits as you like!
