A fortifying healthy smoothie that will get you going on a busy morning. I usually just throw this all together and make one big smoothie that satisfies me until lunch, but I will try and estimate portions for the other Zaarites. :) You can use a combination of berries, I usually use strawberries but sometimes I will make a blueberry and banana shake, or strawberry and banana. **I had to use "frozen strawberries" and "orange juice" so Recipezaar would take the nutritional info but you can use any berry or juice you like. This can be easily customized to fit your tastes.
- 3⁄4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
- 1 cup strawberry, frozen
- 1 banana, chopped
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ (optional)
- Add the yogurt first, then everything else on top.
- Blend at a high speed, stirring with a spatula or spoon (while the blender is stopped!) a few times until everything comes together.
This is good but mine needed a sweetener so I added about 1 tbs creme honey. I used whole frozen strawberries and fresh mango. I also had to use my blender on high speed because of the whole frozen strawberries. I used a tart yogurt that was not specifically low fat. I did not add the optional and omitted the wheat germ one reason being because of a wheat allergy. I may make versions of this with honey again.
Tastes like a strawberry milkshake! I followed the ingredient list exactly and it was perfectly delicious. Because I used whole frozen strawberries I had to put the blender at high speed. The wheat germ blends in - you don't even realize it's there. Next time I will use protein powder too. A terrific creation from The Tiny Chef!
