I’m always amazed what frozen ingredients do to my smoothies!

I love to use fresh ingredients in the summer with a little ice. And in the winter I don’t want freezing smoothies. Yes, I’ll use frozen berries then as fresh are so expensive, but I let them come to room temperature first. (When it’s freezing outside I don’t want to be freezing inside. Yes, I know, I’m a wimp, lol!)

Then every now and again, usually when it’s almost time to head to the store and when fresh stocks are low, I add frozen fruit, frozen spinach and some ice cubes … and WOW, I’m amazed all over again! The mix gets so thick and creamy, so quickly, and I have to add more liquid to get my blender going again, lol!

So, whether it’s hot outside or not, give this delicious berry, banana and yogurt smoothie a go. It comes from Lauren, writing at LaurensLatest. And in case you agree with her husband, here’s her tip …

My husband thought this could have used more sugar … but I thought it was just fine as is. Feel free to add in a drizzle of honey [or maple syrup – my comment] to make this as sweet as you’d like. It was a tasty [and] healthy afternoon snack for us …

 

A NOTE if you are counting calories: you should know that my calculations are made with nonfat Greek yogurt. Add 30 calories to the recipe total if using 2% fat and 100 if you make it with full fat. While that sounds a lot of additional calories, remember the smoothie will be very filling with full fat yogurt and you will not find yourself snacking mid morning, so you’ll save calories there.
