This is just how I like my smoothie, but basically you can put just about anything in!
4-6 ice cubes
2 cups plain yogurt
2 T. sugar
2 T. honey
2 t. vanilla
1 cup frozen fruit
Crush the ice cubes in the blender first. Add the yogurt, sugar, honey, and vanilla. Mix the honey into the yogurt a little bit with a spoon, trying to avoid the sides of the blender. (Once the honey gets stuck on the sides it is hard to get off.) Add the frozen fruit. (I've been using a blend of blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.) Blend this all together thoroughly and eat!
This makes two servings.
I use plain yogurt, so if you use vanilla yogurt you probably won't need the sugar, honey, or vanilla....unless you like it really, really sweet!
The berry blend I'm using now is a bit tart and you end up with seeds in your smoothie, so if you don't like that, I would suggest some other sort of fruit. I'm thinking of getting a bag of frozen strawberries from Costco and making a strawberry/banana smoothie. If you don't mind bananas, they're supposed to make a smoothie a little bit thicker too. You could add the berries to that as well...as I said there's really no one way to make them, but I gave you the basic proportions anyway.
I'm thinking of getting some calcium/magnesium powder to add, because those are two things I need to get more of, but I can't swallow the pills. I imagine there are tons of other protein powders and stuff, but if you start adding too many healthy things, I'm not sure how long it will taste good! :D
