Smoothies are my life, apparently.

Third smoothie entry of the week -- how long am I going to keep this up?

Today's is a variation on my go-to smoothie, made primarily with fruit. I started with the same basic base of yogurt and fruit, but tweaked it a little.

I had honey Greek yogurt on hand, so I used that instead of the usual fruit-flavored regular yogurt. Honey yogurt isn't as sweet to start with, but that works for me.  Because Greek yogurt is thicker, I also added a splash of milk, to enable the blender to mix it up.


I used frozen berries and banana, and my usual cutie. It took a while to blend. Thicker yogurt means it doesn't get down to the blade as easily, so I did quite a bit of stirring and shaking to get it all together. Once that was done, I added 1/4 cup of quick oats -- not the flavored kind, and just the oats, not actual oatmeal. It added some texture and a little fiber.

Overall, I liked it. It was tart - the bananas were the sweetest thing in the mix, so if you prefer your smoothies sweet, add a little sugar or Splenda as needed. I'm not sure I'd always add the oats, but it definitely didn't lower my enjoyment factor.

Calories = 350ish (the oats added 75 calories, so only use them if you really like them!)

Follow up to yesterday's smoothie recipe: The protein hit from the PB2 made that smoothie last a full 3 hours before I was hungry again! Nice.
