Thick and Delicious Fruit Smoothie

I thought I’d change things up a bit for this week’s Recipe Roundtable and offer one of our favorite drinks: fruit smoothie. Who doesn’t love a refreshing smoothie, especially in the summer months??

This recipe makes a thick. sherbert-like smoothie. We almost always use orange juice in our smoothies – it gives the smoothie an extra depth of flavor – but it’s not required.


: Thick and Delicious Fruit Smoothie
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana, cut up
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (optional)
  1. Blend well (use “crush ice” setting at first to help break up the strawberries).
  2. Serve.

If you use fresh strawberries, throw in a little ice to help make it nice and cold and thick!

Also, just for your FYI, starting this month I’ll be posting recipes once a month (instead of once a week) to make room for other post ideas that I have.

      Me, too. I’m addicted to ice cream and these smoothies come as a close – healthier – second. 🙂

  2. Yummy!

    Last year in the heat of summer I bought molds for frozen popsicles. I took canned pears in their own juice plus a banana and blended them together and froze them in the molds. They turned out great.

      Your popsicle recipe sounds good! My aunt used to have those old tupperware popsicle molds. They are so much better than the ones you buy in the store!
