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!
