Introduction

Fruit and yogurt blended into a thick drink, perfect for a healthy breakfast. Fruit and yogurt blended into a thick drink, perfect for a healthy breakfast.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
    1 banana
    2 1/2 cups frozen strawberries

Directions

Makes 2 2-cup servings.

Feel free to substitute any combination of frozen fruits in place of strawberries.

Using the measuring lines on the side of the blender lets you avoid washing measuring cups!

Pour orange juice in blender. Add yogurt till the combination reaches the 1.5 cup line. Add banana. Replace lid on blender and puree for a few seconds.

Add strawberries to approximately the 4.5 cup line. Use the ice crush function to begin breaking down the berries, then run on smoothie speed for 30 seconds or so until everything is blended smooth. If you don't have approximately 4 cups of smoothie, add strawberries until you do.

This makes two breakfast-sized servings, but is also great to serve in smaller portions to accompany other breakfast foods.

Number of Servings: 2

    Looks good, but I'd throw a scoop of protein powder in and use unsweetened almond milk instead of juice. - 7/14/10

    I added 1T flax seed. I don't make it for breakfast, but during the day when I have a craving for something sweet. - 6/22/08

    I made this morning after my work out! Very refreshing. I made a few changes, added raspberrys and peaches to the strawberrys, and used a sugar free raspberry ice mix ( the kind you use for the bottled water) with 12oz of water. Tasted great! - 5/10/08

    I use frozen blueberries (thawed slightly so they blend) sometimes with strawberries (though the blueberry flavour is predominant). My husband likes it with the frozen melon and peaches mix. Makes a great desert with frozen yogurt instead of yogurt - like a milkshake. Very filling. - 7/13/10

    Drinking this right now, and it's delicious. I made it exactly per directions. Might add some spinach next time. - 1/3/12
