Banana-Berry Smoothie | Blendtec Blender Giveaway

Banana-Berry Smoothie

Back in September, I fell in love with smoothies when I got my Blendtec.  Particularly, I fell in love with yogurt in smoothies!

Smoothies make my favorite breakfast.  See, I’m not really a breakfast person so quick, simple and healthy is where I turn.  And my friends at Stonyfield Farms just released a new line of yogurt called Blends – you guessed it- combines fruit and yogurt for a perfectly creamy addition to your favorite morning smoothie.  Oh, and it’s organic! 

Banana-Berry Smoothie

Banana-Berry Smoothie Recipe

Yield: 2 smoothies

Total Time: 5 minutes

Sweet and healthy - bananas, yogurt, berries, honey and flax seed.

Ingredients:

12 ounces Stonyfield Organic Blends Yogurt (I used one Strawberry-Banana and one Blackberry)
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 banana
1 Tbs. honey
1 Tbs. ground flax seed
3-4 ice cubes
1-2 Tbs. milk (just to help it blend)

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a powerful blender, such as Blendtec and blend until smooth. Serves 2.

Smoothies are my favorite because you can mix and match so many flavors. So, do that - use any flavor of yogurt you like, any fruit etc. Just enjoy it!

    What a wonderful giveaway. I noticed you have milk in your picture, but it’s not in the recipe card. Just wondering, how much milk do you use? Thanks :).

      Oh my gosh, thank you or pointing that out. Just a splash to help blend but I will go add it now. Thanks again!

    Erin | The Law Student's Wife — January 18, 2013 @ 7:59 am

    Every time I see a creamy, healthy, fruity smoothie post I ask myself “Why do I not make one of these every day?” They always seem like too much of a mess to me, but maybe I just don’t have the right blender 😉 Plus having the yogurt already a “blend” would save so much time. Changing my smoothie tune!

    sally @ sallys baking addiction — January 18, 2013 @ 8:03 am

    i LOVE smoothies! I just made a strawberry banana smoothie last night Cassie. 🙂 I didn’t add flax seed to it – although I wish I did!

    This is a great giveaway. Smoothies can be such a delicious (and healthy!) snack or meal. For me, frozen bananas are key for texture. And I like to use more frozen fruit instead of ice cubes.

    I looove making smoothies. Bananas are my fav ingredient because you can use it in ANY smoothie whether for taste or just as a thickener.. It’s super diverse and goes with just about every other ingredient you would want to use… chocolate and peanut butter may be the best ones to mix with bananas… 🙂

Makes a great smoothie for breakfast!

  243. #
    Sonja — January 20, 2013 @ 9:35 pm

    Does fresh fruit or frozen seem to work better, or does it matter? Also, will any yogurt work or would you need to adjust the amount if you use regular yogurt? Can’t wait to start making smoothies!

    • Cassie replied: — January 20th, 2013 @ 9:39 pm

      Hi Sonja, fresh or frozen works – if you use fresh, just use more ice cubes. And really any kind of yogurt works. I often use Greek yogurt in smithies.

    I used to have my own Smoothie business with 60 blendtec machines. They’re not good when they break! Still love smoothies to this day, hate blendtec machines. Can’t imagine you making 250 drinks a day though so it should be reliable.

    Favourite smoothie is yoghurt, raspberry and peach. Blended with apple juice as its a neutral flavour rather than the acidic orange juice. Sprinkled with granola on top.

    Wow, this sounds delicious! I’ve never tried flax seed… Does it leave a grainy texture? I love strawberry-peach-pineapple smoothies, with strawberry Greek yogurt!

      Hi Jamie, not really – I buy ground flax seed and after you blend the smoothie, you will never know it’s there!

    I add tofu to my smoothies to make it extra creamy and keeps me full until lunchtime.Don’t forget to add ice cubes so it stays really cold. Can’t wait for a new blender
