Easy Strawberry-Banana Smoothies

Ingredients

  • 1 container (6 oz) Greek Fat Free strawberry yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1 cup frozen unsweetened or fresh strawberries
  • 1 medium banana, sliced (1 cup)

Steps

  • 1
    In blender, place ingredients. Cover; blend on high speed about 30 seconds or until smooth.
  • 2
    Pour into 2 glasses; serve immediately.

  • Spoon the yogurt and milk into the blender container first, so that the blades will start rotating quickly rather than getting hung up on the hard, frozen fruit.
  • Strawberry-banana is one of the most popular fruit combos for smoothies, but if you find yourself with an overload of other ripe fresh fruit, get to work creating your own freezer pantry. To freeze fruits, sort, wash, and drain completely on a clean kitchen towel. Prep fruits as you would for serving by removing stems, coring, peeling, and slicing. Small whole fruits such as berries and cherries (pit them first) can be frozen individually, then placed in ridged covered containers or freezer bags. Freeze ripe bananas, in halves, so they’re ready and waiting too.
  • Almond, coconut, rice, flax, and hemp milk are all terrific lactose-free milk substitutions that make delicious smoothies.
  • Any flavor of yogurt can be spooned into the blender—there are no rules.
