Bass Lake Fruit Smoothies

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Leslie

This is my recipe for smoothies that I always use. We drank many of these while Holidaying at Bass Lake California, hence the name. My daughter loves these, and it's a great morning treat, especially before school, it helps get her moving! I let her choose what flavour she wants the night before, and bring it up to her while she's getting ready for School. The key is the vanilla yogourt, it gives it a great flavour.

Well, when I first saw the title, I thought I was going to be in for one of those SNL Bass-o-matic jokes where you eat the blender and throw away the bass smoothie, but your recipe is fantastic. I live in 3rd world Philippines and had to substitute everything (except ice) in your recipe and it was still to die for. And threw in a couple of frozen bananas for good measure. Make sure you peel them before freezing. I froze everything including the can of tropical fruit cocktail. Open the can first. There's no frozen berries or frozen fruit here. And used Mango ice cream instead of yogurt. Thank you for a great recipe. I'm sure your daughter will remember the good times at Bass Lake and do the same for her children too.
