Your Favorite Fruit Smoothie

Submitted by: DOODLELOVE
Your Favorite Fruit Smoothie

Introduction

My hubby isn't a breakfast guy, but he will gladly consume a smoothie every morning. The secret is the frozen banana! Otherwise, I mix it up every day and simply follow the basic formula of one cup fresh fruit + 1/2 c. frozen fruit and 1/2 frozen banana + 1/2 c. liquid. The liquid can be fruit juice or milk or even yogurt. When that bunch of bananas on your counter is starting to look sad, peel 'em, break in half and stick in the freezer so the secret ingredient is always on hand!

    you can do this with any fruit you want. I leave out the juice/milk/soy part. Just use watermelon if in season. Love it.
