Berry Banana Smoothie

The past week has been brutally cold here in Boston.  Even through we dodged a snowy bullet earlier this week (we were supposed to get 5"...coast was due for 12", and we just got a dusting), we have not dodged the "arctic air".  Being from the South, I'm not a huge fan of walking around in the single digits, but have gotten used to it to some extent.  Unless it's windy.  Nothing helps if it's 5 degrees and windy.

That being said, I still love having something cold at the end of the evening.  This weekend I made some Blueberry-Honey Frozen Yogurt, which was delicious.  But alas, since you can't shouldn't have ice cream every night, I like to change it up with smoothies and parfaits from time to time.  They are definitely yummier than a Popsicle...and much better for you!

Here's one of my favorite combinations - a Berry Banana Smoothie.

All you'll need is...

6-7 large frozen strawberries (about 1.5 cups)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana
1/2 cup skim milk
3 ounces (1/2 single serving cup) blueberry Chobani (stir before adding)

Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth!

This recipe makes two medium sized smoothies with 170 calories in each.  I like using frozen fruit because it acts as the ice.  More fruit is a good thing!

It's a great way to end a night!


  1. Looks and sounds delicious with a whole lot of healthy! I love frozen fruit also. I love sitting and snacking on frozen cherries. :-) BTW - that looks prettier than some really expensive desserts I've seen in nice restaurants. Reia

    1. Oooooh! Frozen cherries - sounds yummy! My grandpa always buys POUNDS of cherries each year, so I LOVE them! I'm going to have to freeze some this year.

  2. Thanks for the recipe, can't wait to try it tonight!

  3. Looks delicious - I'll be trying it this weekend!

  4. Thanks for dropping by my blog. This looks like a super smoothie!
