1 cup of your choice of fresh or frozen fruits (e.g., mixed berries, banana, mango, pineapple, or a combination)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt or dairy-free yogurt for a vegan option
1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy like almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk)
1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to your desired level of sweetness)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Ice cubes (if you prefer a colder smoothie)
Select Your Fruits:
Choose your favorite fruits. You can use a single fruit or a combination for a variety of flavors.
Prep the Fruit:
If you’re using fresh fruit, wash and peel them as needed. If using frozen fruit, there’s no preparation required.
In a blender, add the fruits, Greek yogurt (or dairy-free yogurt), milk, honey or maple syrup, and vanilla extract (if desired).
If you want a colder smoothie, you can add a handful of ice cubes to the blender.
Blend Until Smooth:
Blend all the ingredients until you have a smooth and creamy consistency. If it’s too thick, you can add more milk to reach your desired consistency.
Taste and Adjust:
Taste the smoothie and adjust the sweetness if needed by adding more honey or maple syrup.
Pour your fruit smoothie into a glass.
If you like, you can garnish your smoothie with extra slices of fruit or a sprinkle of chia seeds for added texture and nutrition.
Your Fruit Smoothie is ready to be enjoyed as a refreshing and healthy breakfast or snack.
Fruit Smoothies are versatile, and you can create your own combinations using your favorite fruits and toppings. It’s a great way to start your day with a burst of flavor and nutrition.
