Quick and Healthy Banana Smoothies

A healthy snack or meal, fast!  Banana Smoothies have  become a staple in my house. I’m in love with these delicious little concoctions, they take a couple minutes to make and they are good for you. Smoothies are a good source of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

TIP: Don’t throw out your dark bananas, instead peel them and place in a plastic bowl with lid in the freezer. Frozen banana’s are awesome for smoothies.


The Best Banana Smoothie EVER!!!             


Ingredients:
2 cups Vanilla Frozen Yogurt (Dreyer’s is the best)
2 Banana’s
1½ cups milk

Place all of the ingredients in the blender. Blend to desired consistency.

This taste more like a shake than a smoothie. The best part is that Dreyer’s frozen yogurt has all the same benefits of regular yogurt and it makes a great smoothie.
