Strawberry Banana Smoothie

No excuses, that's my motto.

Mr. Heart has perfected the art of my favorite smoothie! When we first began the smoothie escapades, with no knowledge as to the art of smoothie preparation, we started with just frozen berries. This came out far too chunky and jammed our blender something awful. Obviously, we were missing the critical liquid component. Orange juice was tried, but for me at least, it over powered the other flavors. Then we tried strawberry yogurt, which was on the right path, and then finally, vanilla yogurt. A splash of apple juice to up the liquid content and voila!

This general formula can be used for other flavors too! We've also experimented with peach/blueberry and blueberry/cinnamon!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Serves 2

1 banana, broken into chunks
1 cup of frozen strawberries
2/3 cup of vanilla yogurt (one single serving container does the trick)
2/3 cup apple juice or cider

1) Combine all ingredients in blender. Pulse until smooth and thick!
