Mixed Fruit Smoothie

The weather is warming up in the Bay Area and this is a refreshing and healthy mixed fruit smoothie to cool down with.  It is sweetened with a dash of honey and frozen fruit add a refreshing chill to the drink.

Yogurt is another addition that I try and add to all my smoothies, as it’s a great way to add some healthy probiotics to your diet.

This is a simple recipe and I use my trusty Vitamix to whip up these smoothies on a regular basis.

Add milk, a ripe banana and yogurt to the blender. I have used 2% fat milk. You can use whole milk for a richer smoothie, or use another substitute for mil here like Almond Milk or Soy Milk.

Next add frozen berry and fruit mix. I use the frozen fruit mixes available in Costco. I have used the triple berry mix and the day break blend which includes peaches, pineapple, mango and strawberry. You can use you favorite fruit blends or a mix of fruit blends like I have.

If you are using fresh fruit, cut back on the milk and add some ice to make it cold.

Top it off with honey or a sweetener of your choice. This is optional, but I found that I needed a dash of extra honey.

Blend and serve. My daughter loves the frothy bubbles.

This is a great way to add some extra fruit servings to your daily meals.

Garnish with fresh fruit if desired.
