Do you get hung up on what to put in smoothies? For some reason, making smoothies used to intimidate me. Now, I have a no fail recipe for a delicious smoothie every time.
It’s 1 cup of frozen yogurt, 1/2 cup of frozen fruit, and 1/4 cup of juice. The consistency is perfect and makes enough for two. What I love is that you can change flavors of yogurt, fruit, and juice for lots of variety.
You can freeze your own fruit or buy frozen fruit. I usually freeze my bananas right before they go bad (peel first) or stock up on berries when they are on sale.
You can’t go wrong. It’s fun for the kids to experiment with different flavors. Yogurt and juice comes in so many flavors. You can make something as wild as key lime yogurt, frozen bananas, and apple juice or as simple as vanilla yogurt, frozen berries, cranberry juice. The possiblilities are endless. So scrap all those smoothie recipe books and remember this simple combination – 1 cup of frozen yogurt + 1/2 cup of frozen fruit + 1/4 cup of juice = the perfect smoothie.
