I will start off by saying .... yuck what an unflattering picture .... however I promise once you taste it you won't care how it photographs because its super tasty.
Smoothies are really easy to make, you just have to prepare ahead of time. I think Trader Joe's is the best store to hit when buying smoothie ingredients. I buy the bags of frozen strawberries ($1.69), a can of the orange juice concentrate ($1.99), tub of yogurt ($2.69) and a bunch of bananas ($0.19 each). This easily makes about 4-6 servings all for around 6 bucks which is the price for one smoothie if you go out to grab one.
Using milk and yogurt (& no ice) gives a great creamy consistency and is the perfect snack or breakfast treat! Plus, if there are other fruits you would rather use or want to change it up a bit it's super simple and can easily be done.
- 2/3 cup yogurt
- 1 cup milk (if you want it thinner -- add more)
- 1 frozen banana, cut up
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 1/2 tbsp orange juice concentrate
Throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. This makes 2 servings unless you want a giant smoothie all to yourself.
