Smoothies are a perfect breakfast food, and they’re also a fabulous addendum to a book and a hammock or any other slow-food activity. Use whole or 1% milk if you prefer, soy milk or fruit juice, and choose your favorite fruits. The second best thing to being a healthy fast food is that they’re very adaptable. Here’s one version. Make up your own – just be sure to perk it up with vanilla!Print
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup yogurt, plain
1 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract
1 small-to-medium banana
2–3 tablespoons honey (more or less to taste)
2 cups frozen whole strawberries, no sugar added*
Combine first 5 ingredients in a blender container; gradually add strawberries and process until smooth and thick.
Makes 4 servings.
*Fresh strawberries may be used, but freeze in a single layer before using.
