Fruit Smoothie

Yields1 ServingPrep Time5 mins

This refreshing smoothie is packed full of vitamins and minerals! Try it for breakfast sometime, for a quick and healthy meal on the go.

A clear glass filled with a pink Fruit Smoothie and a yellow straw, next to bananas, strawberries, and kiwi.

 2 bananas (peeled and cut into chunks)
 1 cup fruit juice (orange or grape is always a hit with the kids)
 1 cup plain yogurt
 8 ice cubes (add more or less for your desired thickness)
 ¼ cup fresh or frozen berries (optional)

Put all ingredients into a heavy-duty blender with ice crushing power. Cover and blend until smooth. If the mixture is too thin, add more ice and/or banana chunks. Pour into glasses, garnish with more berries and serve at once.

Hint: Frozen bananas work best. I buy "too ripe" bananas, peel, cut into chunks and freeze them. Then when I'm ready to make smoothies, I have a supply of super-cold bananas. (Colder bananas yield thicker smoothies.)
