As you know, fruit smoothies are on my menu plan almost every week for breakfast. I love me my smoothies. They are one of the few things I can enjoy for breakfast that keeps my tummy full until lunch time. I know everyone who makes smoothies probably makes them a little differently, but I thought I'd share how I like to make them. Sorry about the pictures, my camera was not on my side today.
1/2-1 cup of milk (I use 1%)
100 g yogurt (this is one individual carton. If I have a large carton I just do a few heaping spoonfuls)
1-2 tsp ground flax seed
1 cup fruit**
1. Place all ingredients in 4 cup glass measuring cup. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth. Enjoy!
Some people also use juice in place of (or in addition to the milk). I don't usually have juice in the house so I omit it. Also, some people put ice in it to make it more slushy like. I prefer mine without.
** My favorite fruit combos are: Banana and strawberry, blackberry and banana, strawberry and pineapple, strawberry and cantaloupe and banana and peach.
What are your favorite smoothie combination?
