You can use this basic recipe to create your own unique smoothies. This is my husband's recipe - he makes them every weekend morning for the kids & us.

We really enjoyed this. I made it for my son who was recovering from a sickness and it helped him to feel much better. Great! Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup yogurt (any flavor)
  • 12 cup milk or 12 cup juice
  • 1 banana
  • 12 cup chopped fruit (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 teaspoon wheat germ (optional)
  • 12 cup ice cube (optional)


  1. Mix all together in a blender and serve immediately.
  2. The optional wheat germ will not affect the taste or texture but it will give your smoothie an extra health boost.
  3. Add the ice cubes if you'd like a thicker or colder drink; more like a slushy, especially with frozen banana/fruit/yogurt.
  4. Use up to 1 cup of yogurt for a thicker drink.
  5. Other options: 1/2 t vanilla; 1 T honey; 1-2 T powdered sugar, white sugar or Splenda.
