Just because summer is “officially” over with the coming and going of Labor Day, doesn’t mean you have to immediately stop making your favorite summer foods. Summer doesn’t really end until September 21st so we still have a few weeks to make all the barbecue, fruit cobblers and potato salads that we didn’t get a chance to all throughout June, July and August!
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!
