Fruit smoothie

Some people just can't get past the green color of the green smoothies, but fruit smoothies are still packed with nutrients. Here's last night's creation:

1 C strawberries, stems removed
1 1/2 C bananas
1/2 C plain yogurt
6 ice cubes

Give all the ingredients a spin in a food processor or blender. I processed the fruit together, then added the yogurt and mixed, then finally added the ice, but I'm not sure this order was necessary.
This smoothie was plenty sweet without any added sweeteners, and was just as good as anything I'd get at Frulatti, and WAY better than anything at Orange Julius! I had it as a dessert, but would make an awesome breakfast as well.

My wife, "Enchanted Chameleon," http://enchantedchameleon.typepad.com/enchanted_chameleon/ has made a video on green smoothies. Check it out on you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRIa4fVOV8I

I make something very similar. I add a small handful of blueberries too! I love it. :)
