I have mentioned before how much I love to have a smoothie for breakfast and I have shared many recipes before. Today’s recipe is a basic formula you can follow when making a smoothie. This recipe allows you to get creative or use whatever you may have on hand. The formula includes juice, yogurt, and fruit. Think of how many juices there are out there and how many yogurt flavors there are. Now think of all the fruits available. The flavor combinations are ENDLESS!
Now I prefer to use frozen fruit when I can. Not only does it add flavor but it adds thickness so you don’t need added ice. However, always feel free to use fresh fruit if you have it just be sure to add some ice to help thicken the smoothie. For the photo, I use Trop50 Orange Juice (love that I can use this and reduce the calories), vanilla yogurt (this is my favorite flavor to use), and a combination of frozen strawberries, peaches, pineapple and mango. This is all in a bag of frozen fruit I get from Walmart labeled mixed fruit.
