Fruit & Yogurt Smoothie

     I've made it my intention to eat super healthy from here on out, due to my recent diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, but also just because I'm getting older & I know it's the right thing to do. 

    Sooooo---for those who care, here is the Fruit Smoothie recipe I made today----I adapted one I found so you can do it my way or YOUR way....lol!  

     From now on, my breakfast will consist of a smoothie.  I'll snack on something healthy around lunchtime or mid-day & then eat a nice big salad LOADED with vegi's and/or protein for dinner.

     Have no fear, however....that this is going to become a blog filled with diet recipes.  I still plan to indulge once in a while--I feel that is completely normal & most things are fine moderation.  I will still be posting delicious things so don't you dare go anywhere!

Fruit & Yogurt Smoothie

1 C yogurt (I used Vanilla)
1/2 C frozen strawberries (I used 3/4 c. assorted frozen berries)
1/4 C frozen blueberries (see above---I just used 3/4 c total of assorted berries)
1 apple, cored and sliced (I did NOT use the apple)
1 banana (this is BEST FROZEN--mine was not today 'cause I spaced it yesterday--I've already put some in the freezer for tomorrow!)
1 Tbsp. raw sugar (NOT needed--I didn't use)
1 tsp. vanilla
Dump everything into a blender and puree.

Comes out THICK like a shake. SOOOO good---even my hubby Doug loves it!

Makes one smoothie (tall glass)

  1. Thanks for the healthy recipe! I agree with you about having to eat right. Even though I’m still in my 30’s, I have to start eating healthier if I don’t want to end up paying large medical bills because I was careless with what I ate.
