Fruit Smoothies

DSC0971-700x1056

Is it a drink? Is it a meal? It’s both! It’s a smoothie. A refreshing one, might I add, that isn’t too sweet and is oh so filling. Smoothies are the easiest things to make, and they’re the perfect breakfast. Forget Jamba Juice (although, I love their oatmeal. go ahead and get that). All you need to make a smoothie is fruit (fresh or frozen) and yogurt/milk. Then add whatever your heart desires. Hell, add oats if you want. Then it’ll be a real party in a cup. It’ll be one satisfying breakfast drink, that’s for sure. You’re gonna need a blender. Sorry, there’s really no way around that. Please get yourself a $15 blender. I have about 3 at home.

The versatile ratio for one serving of smoothie is as follows:
1 whole banana (frozen or fresh)
1 cup fruit (frozen or fresh)
½ cup yogurt
½ cup milk
¼ cup fruit juice
3 tablespoons uncooked oats
2-3 tablespoons honey (optional)
2 tablespoons peanut butter (optional)

For non-dairy smoothies, substitute 1 cup rice, almond, or soy milk for the milk and yogurt. As for the frozen bananas, it’s a million times easier to just freeze peeled bananas individually for use. If you have frozen unpeeled bananas, don’t fear the peel. Place the frozen unpeeled banana in a bowl of hot tap water for a minute. That should soften the peel enough for you to remove it and discard immediately.
