Berry Bonanza Smoothie

Keep frozen mixed berries in your freezer and you’ll be able to whip up this smoothie in no time. The frozen fruit will make your drink slightly thicker than if you used fresh.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 c. low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 c. berries (any mix of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries), frozen
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 5 ice cubes

Preparations

Peel the banana and place in the blender. Add yogurt, berries, honey, and ice, and blend on high speed to mix. Garnish with a couple of whole berries. (Makes 2 smoothies)

Variations

If you don’t have plain yogurt, you can use vanilla or a berry-flavored variety, but you may want to cut the honey to one tablespoon. You can also use fresh berries rather than frozen, but up the ice cubes to 10.
