Banana Berry Smoothies

I like making smoothies at home for breakfast or after a round of golf.  The best thing about homemade smoothies is that you know what’s in there.  It seems that what you get at a lot of smoothie shops is  loaded up with tons of extra sugar.  I made these smoothies with three simple ingredients:  fruit, skim milk and lowfat yogurt.

Banana Berry Smoothies

24 oz frozen berries of your choice (I used mixed berries and a few cherries)

2 fresh bananas, sliced

2 cups skim milk

2 cups vanilla lowfat yogurt

mint leaves for garnish

This makes 3 large or 4 medium smoothies.  Ok, so I totally stuffed my blender with this recipe.  You might want to half it to make things a little easier. 

It doesn’t matter all that much what order you add ingredients, but I did discover a trick for making things blend more thoroughly, more quickly.  Add half the berries and bananas, then add the liquids (milk and yogurt) so they seep down through the fruit, add the rest of the fruit and then blend to your desired consistency.  I did not use this method this time and I had to stop blending to stir things around a few times.  Also, one of the best parts of using frozen fruit is that you don’t have to dilute the smoothie with ice, which sometimes doesn’t blend all that well anyway.

I like to garnish the smoothies with mint leaves for a nice finishing touch.
