Berry Smoothie

20120613-083014.jpg

My favorite smoothie is simple: strawberries, blueberries and a banana made with Greek yogurt and a touch of honey.

Two of the main ingredients: bananas and blueberries gross me out like no other. I think blueberries are just funky and I don’t really care for them at all when eaten alone. And bananas are the bane of my fruit existence…if that even makes sense as I described here.

There’s no real science to this recipe: I just throw 1 whole banana, a handful of blueberries and a few strawberries into the blender with 1 cup of Greek yogurt (Trader Joe’s vanilla bean is my favorite) with a few ice cubes. I add in a little honey and blend.

I don’t care what anyone says–this is NOT a meal replacement. It’s barely a snack replacement. I had this last night and went to bed with my stomach growling. It’s tasty and healthy and all of that good stuff but it also leaves me wanting a slice of pizza an hour later.

What are your favorite fruit smoothies? I am trying to branch out a bit!

  1. Yum! Looks delicious. I know what you mean about smoothies not being filling though. That is why I always add some kind of fat to mine (usually peanut butter) or eat it with something else. I love mango almond smoothies the best though.

  2. I’m such weirdo when it comes to smoothies. I love avocado, cucumber, kale, and peach smoothies. Lol, it sounds like a mouthful but it is sooo wonderful and delicious!

  3. i made a smoothie over the weekend w/strawberries and blueberries and it turned purple. i think my strawberry to blueberry ratio was off. your smoothie looks good!

  4. Thank you for the great suggestions! I am definitely going to try making a few of the smoothies you guys suggested soon so check back for that 🙂

  5. My son & I make them with frozen berries, banana, yogurt and a little fruit juice. The more fruits, the better. Plus, by using frozen berries it’s icy without being watery.
