Strawberry Banana Smoothies

My kiddos (and us big kids too) love making and drinking smoothies! They are so easy and fun to make! It's usually a little bit of this and a little bit of that to suit your tastes. The kids had a lot of fun helping make them and even more fun drinking them. And I see it as a good way to get a few extra fruits in them. Here is basically what we used...


1 1/2 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen that has been thawed)
1 banana, cut up
1/2 cup milk (I used 2% but you could use any variety)
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
about a cup of ice cubes

Place strawberries, banana, milk, yogurt, sugar and vanilla and pulse blender. Add ice cubes and continue pulsing until it is smooth and creamy.

Pour into glasses and serve immediately. You could use any variety of berries you like- raspberries, blueberries, etc.
