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 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!

    My favorite ingredient is peanut butter! It gives a smoothie so much more oomph and makes them way more filling!
