Fruit Smoothie

Fruit Smoothie

1-2 cups berries (or any fresh or frozen fruit you desire)
1 cup milk
1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/4-1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1 banana
8-10 ice cubes

Pour all liquids into the blender first.  Blend until well mixed.  Add all other ingredients and blend starting out on the lowest setting until you see a vortex form in the center.  Once the vortex forms, you can turn the speed up higher until all of the fruit has been broken up and there are not big ice chunks.  


{cooks note}

If you blend your liquids first, this will prevent your smoothie from forming a funnel inside.  If you increase the speed too quickly, an air bubble will form and the blades will spin around inside that bubble causing you to have to shake your blender to get it out.  It also helps to have a decent blender too.  I used my Bosch blender.

The ingredients:
Frozen raspberries and blackberries, skim milk, low-fat vanilla yogurt, frozen orange juice concentrate, banana and ice.

All ingredients in the blender.  I blend my liquids first then added the rest of the ingredients.

  A healthy smoothie perfect for breakfast or a great snack.

Your kids will love it.  Blake spent the last 2 minutes sucking up everything he could from the bottom.
