One of my father’s favorite anytime indulgences is making a smoothie with a ripe banana, some of our homemade plum jam, plain yogurt, and honey. In the late fall, he’ll swap out the jam for ripe kiwi-fruit. Personally, I’m a blueberry and strawberry fan. Actually, I can’t remember ever meeting a smoothie I didn’t like (have great plans for the papaya ripening on the counter). Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? If so, please let us know in the comments. In the meantime, what follows is a super simple recipe for either a strawberry or blueberry smoothie.
- 1 ripe banana, cut into pieces
- 2 cups of berries - blueberries (fresh or frozen), strawberries (quartered), or other berries
- 1/2 cup crushed ice
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- 1/4 cup honey
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
