When the weather starts warming up, I get smoothies on the brain all the time. The only problem is, there aren’t many places to get one around here, unless you want to go to Dairy Queen. Paying $4 for a smoothie just doesn’t sit well with me. So, I thought I would share my favorite homemade smoothie recipe today. This recipe will make enough to serve 2.
12 Frozen Strawberries
1 Peeled and cut up banana
1/2 Cup Skim Milk
1/2 Cup Vanilla Yogurt (I don’t use light. I like the full fat yogurt. I think the light varieties give this a weird flavor)
3 Tablespoons White Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Top with whipped cream. Serve.
*The smoothie will be thick. If you like yours a bit thinner, add more milk. If you prefer fresh strawberries over frozen, use 12 fresh berries and 7 cubes of crushed ice in place of the frozen berries).
