Strawberry and Raspberry Smoothie

I have a confession…..I am addicted to smoothies.  I love my morning smoothie almost  as much as I love my coffee.  There are so many different combinations that smoothies never get boring.

I have another confession.  I really really dislike yogurt.  Everything about it: taste, texture, smell.  Yuck.  However, yogurt is good for me (and you), therefore,  I have to get sneaky on my tastebuds and find ways to include it in my diet.  Smoothies are a great way to hide things you don’t like.

One of my tricks with smoothies is I like to use frozen fruit, that way it doesn’t get watered down with ice cubes.  If you want to use fresh, go for it! It will be equally as yummy.

Serves 4

  • 2/3 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 large fresh banana
  • 1-6oz container of yogurt (plain or strawberry.  If you’re trying to keep your added sugar down, go for the plain)
  • 1.5 cups of milk

Toss everything in the blender and blend until smooth. Yum!
