Yogurt-Berry Smoothie

Cold and sweet, quick and filling. When you're short on time, a yogurt-berry smoothie prepared in the blender can be your best friend. It's almost a meal in itself -- perfect as an energy-booster morning pick-me-up or as an emergency lunch toted in a sport bottle and enjoyed on the run.


  • 2 cups plain fat-free yogurt
  • 2 ripe medium bananas
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries or unsweetened frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup mixed fresh berries, such as raspberries, blueberries, and/or blackberries or unsweetened frozen mixed berries


1. In a blender, puree all ingredients
