We love a good smoothie here at the Merkley home.
Back in Arizona, it had become tradition to have a smoothie concoction of sorts every Sunday night at my in-laws. My FIL would throw some fruits together and see what he could come up with. He usually used the fruits that were in season and growing on their trees in the backyard. I think it’s safe to say that not one drink was the same. They were always a little different, but always so delicious! In fact, the kids would call it the “yummy drink”! I don’t blame them for calling it that because it really was yummy, and I think all of you guys could agree that smoothies are not only delicious, but so cool and refreshing!
If you’re like us we’re always looking for new fruit smoothie recipes, and today I wanted to share with one my sister came up with. It has a little bit of everything and was definitely a “keeper concoction.”
- 2 fresh bananas, peeled
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1 cup frozen mango chunks
- 1-5.3 oz chobanni pineapple yogurt
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1-2 cups ice cubes
- Mix all ingredients in a blender. Serve and enjoy
- The great thing about smoothies is you can substitute as you wish. Use skim milk instead of coconut milk, pineapple chunks instead of yogurt, or mango orange juice instead of mango chunks. Be creative and you just might like what you come up with!
Not sure about how it is for you guys, but sometimes at night all the hubby and I want is a nice cool drink or smoothie, and we often opt not to have real dinner and just make a smoothie instead. Is that weird? Sometimes a smoothie is just the right thing for our appetite and it’s always so fun coming up with new yummy recipes for them. Can’t wait to try this one!
