Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie

P1020783Smoothies are cool and refreshing, and a great way to get a lot of goodness in just one glass!

When my son, Adam, was a toddler, I had a hard time getting him to eat well. He was so picky! Fruits were something I definitely could not get him to eat. That is when I started to make smoothies on a regular basis. He loved them, and I loved that he was getting the nutrition from the fruit and protein from the yogurt.

Smoothies make a great breakfast, snack, or even lunch- which is when we usually enjoy them. Paired with something salty like cheese, or something with peanut butter, it makes a nice lunch.

Of course there are limitless varieties of smoothies. This one is pretty basic with fruit and yogurt, but it’s one that we like the best.

  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt (I use Dannon Natural since it does not have a lot of extra ingredients)
  • 2 whole bananas, peeled
  • 1 1/2- 2 cups frozen tropical fruit (a frozen tropical blend of: strawberries, pineapple, and mango chunks)  or frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup 100% orange juice
  • 1/2 cup milk 

Place the ingredients in the blender in the order listed above. Blend until smooth. Add more juice or milk if needed.

Makes 4- 5, 1-cup servings
