Smooties, revisited

(Originally posted on Sunday, July 2, 2006 by Cathy)

Tim and I don't really agree on appropriate formulations for smoothies. His recipe is much too thick, and verges on being desert instead of breakfast.

So, I present you with....

lower guilt smoothies

  • One over-ripe banana
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of orange juice
  • 1 to 1.5 cups frozen fruit (pineapple is my current favorite, strawberries are good too)
  • 1 cup plain organic yogurt (not vanilla, too sweet)
Blend until smooth, offer half to Tim, who will refuse. Put half in the fridge. Go look for it in an hour or so and discover it is no longer there. Blame a dog. (Alternately, pour entire blender contents into a 1L drink container and drink.)

Unlike Tim's recipe and typical coffee shop smoothies, this is a thinner, drinkable smoothie, not requiring a spoon. It is also much less sweet than a coffee shop smoothie, since it gets all its sweetness from the fruit used.
