I have mentioned before how much I love to have a smoothie for breakfast and I have shared many recipes before. Today’s recipe is a basic formula you can follow when making a smoothie. This basic fruit smoothie recipe allows you to get creative or use whatever you may have on hand.
The formula for the basic fruit smoothie includes juice, yogurt, and fruit. Think of how many juices there are out there and how many yogurt flavors there are. Now think of all the fruits that are available. The flavor combinations for smoothies are ENDLESS!
Now, I do prefer to use frozen fruit when I can. Not only does it add flavor but it adds thickness. So you don’t need added ice. However, always feel free to use fresh fruit if you have it on hand. Just be sure to add some ice to help thicken the smoothie.
For the photo, I use Trop50 Orange Juice. I love that I can use this and reduce the calories. I also used vanilla yogurt (this is my favorite flavor to use) and a combination of frozen strawberries, peaches, pineapple and mango. This is all in a bag of frozen fruit I get from Walmart labeled mixed fruit.
