My Favorite Morning Smoothie

My Favorite Morning Smoothie

I should trademark this phrase. ‘My Favorite Morning Smoothie.’  It’ll undoubtedly be the upcoming title of a new band,  a popular song, or political podcast.  Alas, for now, it shall be the modest title of my most recent post. (Don’t any of you go stealing it!)

In addition to being low in calories and high in vitamin C, strawberries and raspberries are high in fiber.  Banana adds a wonderful depth of flavor and an extra boost of potassium.  Yogurt is added for a creamy texture and a bit of protein. Fresh orange juice gives the wonderfully subtle tang.  Both fresh or frozen fruit can be used.  I prefer frozen, adding a nice thickness.  I adore this recipe.  If you use all frozen fruits, you may need to add a bit of milk or water.  If you use all fresh fruit, you may need to add a bit of ice.

Now you can be that person.  You know where “My Favorite Morning Smoothie”  actually originated.  It came from Emily Always Cooks!
