How to Make a Smoothie

Hubby and I absolutely love smoothies. We have one almost every night for “dessert.”  They’re delicious, and it feels like you’re having a treat even though they’re very healthy!

Here’s my simple method for making delicious smoothies. Feel free to substitute any fruit you like!

This makes 2 good-sized smoothies.

Cast of Ingredients:

2 bananas
5-8 strawberries

1/2 cup vanilla (or other flavor) yogurt
2 cups ice
Optional: 1/4 cup skim milk or juice

Peel the bananas and break up into small chunks before putting in the blender.


Next, dump in the yogurt.


Add in the strawberries. You don’t even need to cut off the tops! Couldn’t be easier.


Blend for a minute until ingredients start to mix. If you need a little more liquid, add in a splash of skim milk or juice.
Then add in 1 cup of ice, and blend until ice begins to be mixed in.


Add in the rest of the ice, and blend for a few minutes until smooth.

Pour into two glasses, add a straw, and enjoy! A delicious treat, especially in the hot summer.

Sometimes I add in pineapple, mango, or blueberries. You can’t go wrong with any combination! Peanut butter also goes well with banana, and adds in some extra fiber.

I stock up on strawberries when they are on sale, and put them in the freezer to use later. We go through a lot of bananas, but it’s worth it to enjoy the healthy smoothies. Anything that gets hubby and I to eat more healthily, plus tasting good, is worth it in my book!
