Recipe: Easy Fruit Smoothie

Blueberry/Peach Smoothie- one of our favorites!

I discovered this simple recipe a couple of years ago when my mother-in-law made it for us. The moment I tasted it I was sold!  That might not sound that surprising but you see, I am an ice cream lover and usually go crazy over shakes and ice cream faster than I do smoothies. But these smoothies are so good that I frequently vote for them over ice cream!

Easy to make, delightfully refreshing and healthy ta-boot, what more could you want?

Easy Fruit Smoothie

1 qt. frozen fruit
1 c. yogurt, plain or flavored**
1 c. milk
Sweeten to taste
Any add-in such as chia seeds, flax seeds, wheat germ (optional)

Blend in blender on high until smooth.

Yields: 4 (8 oz.) glasses

** Make this inexpensively using your own homemade yogurt.

    Sounds good! I’ll have to try these. :) Have you sweetened with Stevia? Just wondering about using liquid stevia to sweeten….

    Rachel, I’d love to know what you think if you try them. I have not started using Stevia, although I would like to, so I don’t have any experience with it. But from what I know I’m guessing you could easily use it for this. I often don’t have to sweeten it very much though and since Stevia is so concentrated you’d probably only need a smidgen.

    For whatever it is worth, I have used raw sugar often for both my yogurt and these smoothies.

    These sound delicious! We make a similar smoothie using strawberries, peaches, bananas, and milk. I think we would love the flavor of this (banana-less) smoothie. :-)

    Judy, I’d love to know what you think. I know a lot of smoothie recipes take bananas and I’m strange and don’t really like them so this recipe is perfect for me!
