Strawberry/Banana/Orange Smoothie

We love smoothies in my house.  They are easy to make, and healthy, too!

Strawberry/Banana/Orange Smoothie

1-1/4 c. plain, fat-free yogurt
8 ounces frozen strawberries (I use VIP's whole frozen strawberries, no sugar added)
2 bananas
1 c. orange juice

Place all of the ingredients into a blender.  Blend until smooth.  You may need to stop the blender and stir the ingredients so everything will get blended.  I use the button "ice crush" or "liquefy" on my blender.  And voila...you have a smoothie.  Makes about 5 cups.

Substitutions:  There is no added sugar in this smoothie recipe, so you may find it a little tart.  You can add 2-3 T. honey or sugar if you find it too tart.  You can use whatever frozen fruit or juice (or even milk!) you'd like...this is just the combination we like the best.  Also, you can use low-fat vanilla yogurt instead of the fat-free.

Review:  This is very refreshing on a hot day!  It makes for a great breakfast drink, or snack during the day.  You may want to add a little sugar/honey to sweeten the smoothie, but we like it without the added sugar.  Enjoy~
