A cool, refreshing smoothie is a good breakfast on a hot summer day! Start with a banana, mango, strawberries and some Greek yogurt, and go from there. Recipe by Dorothy Reinhold. Get ideas for your home cooking recipes here.
1 ripe banana (if it is huge, you can use one-half a banana)
1 ripe large mango
seeded and peeled
15 or so strawberries, stemmed
½ cup or so Greek yogurt (prefer Oikos Organic Greek Non-fat Yogurt, Vanilla Flavored, but use whatever you like)
1-2 tablespoons agave (optional 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon flax oil (or 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds)
1 cup (or more) crushed ice
Add all ingredients to the blender container, and whirl until thick and frosty, 30-60 seconds.
Note: If you freeze the banana ahead of time, in slices, you can omit the crushed ice.
