Recipe for a Refreshing Smoothie

With many regions sweltering in 100 F, fruit smoothies are a great way to keep yourself cool and hydrated with natural, healthy ingredients. Takes about ten minutes to make!

Here's one of my favorites:


1 ripe banana (cut up in small chunks)
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup ripe strawberrries
100 gr plain yoghurt (these are the small containers)
1/2 cup orange juice

Add the ingredients one by one in the order listed above. Blend until smooth. Use a spoon to check for desired thickness. Add more orange juice or some skim milk if too thick.

Normally fills 4 - 5 glasses. Enjoy and keep cool folks!

Celia, that's almost identical to how I make mine only I add in some ice for the feeling of a slushie. Youts sounds yummy! Erin Sinclair. "For love that's out of this world!".
