Banana Berry Smoothie

From breakfast to dessert, smoothies are a great option for a quick and nutritious treat. When I got home from the gym this afternoon I wanted something easy to make, healthy, filling and refreshing, so I whipped up this fruit-filled drink. It only takes 3 ingredients: non-fat plain greek yogurt, frozen mixed berries and a banana. I used 3/4 cup yogurt, 1 banana and about 3/4 cup berries, but you can play around with the ratio.¬†Selecting the right ingredients is important because they can take a smoothie from healthy to high-calorie, high-sugar, etc. When selecting a yogurt, make sure it is protein-packed and low in sugar. As for the fruit, use either fresh fruit or frozen fruit that does not have added sugar.¬†Just blend it up and… ta da! You’ve got yourself a simple, healthy treat!
