Breakfast Smoothie

A few years ago when I was still working full time, my hubby and I had a hard time coming up with breakfast on the fly. Cereal never seemed to cut it for us, and we would find ourselves starving within a couple hours. So we created this recipe. Not only is it good, but you can change it up daily. What a great way to start the day!

The ingredients:
1 c. juice (any kind)
2 heaping T. yogurt (Vanilla, or any other flavor)
1 frozen banana (break into pieces before freezing, store in freezer bags)
1 handful frozen fruit (preaches, berries, melon, etc.)

The instructions:

Add everything to a blender...

...and blend away!

If smoothie is too thick, add more juice, if too thin, add yogurt or more fruit.

You may have to chase away some rascals who like to eat your ingredients...

This specific concotion was Cran-Grape juice, banana, peaches, and vanilla yogurt, and it was a smash hit with my littlest monkey...

(This really isn't so much a recipe as it is a concept. My favorite combos are: White cranberry peach juice, with peaches, and either vanilla or raspberry yogurt, Orange juice with strawberries and vanilla yogurt.)
