Mixed Berry, Banana, and Yogurt Smoothie

It was 80 degrees here in Portland today – can you believe it?  After all the rain we’ve been having it was wonderful to have a warm and sunny day!  I made these smoothies for my kids’ after school snack.  It was a great way to use up the bananas that were extra ripe.  It was also a super healthy treat and it cooled my hot kids right down.  A delicious smoothie always tastes good after a long day of school!   The kids happily gobbled down their drinks before we headed to the creek to play in the mud.  Good times!

Place the strawberries, bananas, frozen mixed berries, ice, honey, and yogurt into a large container.  Blend the mixture using an immersion blender until creamy and smooth.  Serve with a strawberry garnish and a straw.  Enjoy! If you don’t have an immersion blender a regular blender or food processor would work great too.

    I make one very similar to this but I freeze the bananas, leave out the ice and add a little milk. I agree, they are to die for!!!

    I can’t believe I’m saying this already but I long for 80 degree days! It’s in the high 90’s here and it’s even reached over 100 a few days.. summer is definitely here! This is the perfect way to help stay cool on days like that! YUM!

    I’ve never even thought to try making a smoothie with my immersion blender. That’s a great tip that I will probably try soon, just to see how it works for me. Thanks!

    I’ve had a bad tooth for a week and have been pretty well living on milk and frozen berries fed through the blender. Too bad it hasn’t been warm here since last Thursday!

    This looks refreshing and delicious Pam. This smoothie will taste great for breakfast or as a snack on one of our hot summer afternoons. We had 85 degree weather last week; so humid too.

    Those banana’s are “extra ripe” compared to some around our house, lol.
