My kids got a kick out of these. I made them for Valentine's Day breakfast last year. A beautiful pink color and taste great too.
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 ripe banana, peeled, frozen, and sliced
- 2 tablespoons strawberry jam
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3 -4 drops red food coloring
- In a blender container, add yogurt, banana, jam, honey, and food coloring.
- Cover and blend on high until smooth and foamy.
- Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
The kids loved this one as a Valentine's Day treat. I made it exactly as written, using fat free yogurt. I found it a little sweeter than I would like, though the kids thought it was perfect.
This recipe is great! It's easy to make,and a great Valentine's treat.(Without all the sugar)
I'm giving this 4 stars because 1) my ending result came out fabulous and 2)I have talked with NurseDi about the recipe...and found that one should actually freeze the banana slices!! That is really important..else the smoothie comes out really warm!!! I used 1/2 of the jam and added 4 strawberries to mixture and it came out delightful and lovely in color...i didnt even need to add the food coloring! and the honey is a nice addition :-) As is, I would probably give this recipe 3 stars..only because it came out warm, and because I like my smoothies to have a fresh natural taste to them..., but after discussing it with NurseDi I really think its worth it...if the bananas are frozen. Its a great idea for a smoothie and I definitely suggest trying it with these suggestions. Thanks NurseDi!
