Sometimes the best things are the simplest.
I’ve tried so many fruit-veggie combos in smoothies for over a decade now. It all started with my college campus jamba juice, then I graduated to making my own at-home concoctions, and now regularly mooch off the free make-your-own-smoothie bar at work. I’ve never been big on fruit, so smoothies are literally the only way I’ll consume this essential food group. I like experimenting with recipes, but still always return to my never fail, go-to, very most favorite smoothie recipe of them all, and it has only 3 simple ingredients:
1 cup of non-fat Fage yogurt
1 cup of frozen blueberries
1 very ripe banana
Blend together with 1/2 cup of ice + a few tablespoons of water.
The antioxidants in this baby will make you feel younger with each sip. It’s so sweet and yummy, you’ll forget it’s actually really really good for you!
