This recipe just came to me when I was looking for something healthy that my little guy would eat or drink because he eats so little. This is what I had on hand and it worked.

Cook's Note:

For a different variety use any frozen fruit you like just start small and keep going. To make more for a crowd just adjust the recipe to your liking.

If your blender is a little sluggish then add a couple tablespoons of milk to loosen it up.

In my experience frozen strawberries aren't very sweet (unless you freeze them yourself at the peak of ripeness) so I didn't have high hopes for a sweet smoothie since this called for no sweetener AND plain Greek yogurt but the vanilla whey protein powder had just enough in it to make it the perfect sweetness. I chose to replace the milk with water since it called for both yogurt and protein powder. I also cut the yogurt to 1/2 cup (I tend to think greek yogurt is quite tart). Milk protein powder and yogurt seemed like protein overkill for me. I didn't have mint in my garden so I skipped that also. The smoothie is VERY thick from the frozen fruit. Even my Vitamix needed a little attention to get ingredients to blend but adding more liquid would help solve this problem. I chose to give it a little time and use the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades. This may be a problem with a regular blender so letting the fruit thaw a bit before blending would be helpful. This smoothie turned out very tasty. I enjoyed it! Read More

My 10-year-old and I liked this recipe. I used fresh strawberries, vanilla Greek yogurt, and no protein powder. My daughter preferred it with a tsp of sugar. I liked it fine without. The mint was nice and gave it a light, refreshing taste. Read More

This is a great recipe for beginners to the smoothie world. I omitted the whey and added a tbsp of vanilla extract. I added black cherries & 1 banana blueberries. And I added just over a tbsp of fresh honey. omitted sugar for a little healthier option. This was both sweet & tart but perfect! Fills you up. Thanks for submitting!! Read More
