If you read my last blogpost, I can understand why you're a bit confused. A smoothie recipe? What happened to ridding the freezer of fruit by making fruit leather?
To clear up any confusion: Yes, I still make smoothies, BUT I've learned not to buy fruit in great volumes. That way, I can make a smoothie every now and then when I'm in the mood ;)
So here's how I make 'em: quick, easy, and delicious without dumping unhealthy sorbet, ice cream, sugar, or sugary lemonade...into the mix.
Combine ingredients (see below for list). I use a Magic Bullet so I put the fruit in first, then add the softer items (yogurt) on top so they're closer to the blades.
Blend and WAHLAH!
My favorite are smoothies where the blueberries dominate. So sweet and summery! :)
- 6 spoonfuls of vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup fruit (I chose half blueberries, half mangos)
- 1 tbsp honey
- a few spritzes of lemon juice
- 1 scoop protein powder
So if you're anything like me--hate making elaborate meals that take long (especially when you're hungry, like, NOW!), this is a quick n' easy option that won't leave you feeling guilty (no more Pop Tart or sugary cereal quick-fix!).
