Tasty Tuesday: Easy Fruit Smoothie

This is one of those recipes that I've been wanting to share with you but thought it was more of a summer recipe and figured I'd wait until then. But as I was making it again this week, I decided I just had to share it with you now even if it is freezing outside!

I discovered this simple recipe last fall when my mother-in-law made it for us. The moment I tasted it I was smitten! I know, that sounds dramatic, but maybe this will help you understand. I am an ice cream lover and usually go crazy over shakes faster than I do smoothies. But these smoothies are so good that I frequently vote for them over ice cream!

Easy to make, delightfully refreshing and healthy ta-boot, what more could you want?

Easy Fruit Smoothie
1 qt. frozen fruit*
1 c. yogurt, plain or flavored**
1 c. milk
Sweeten to taste

Blend in blender on high until smooth.

Yields: 4 (8 oz.) glasses

* Our favorite is peach/blueberry. I know it might sound like a funny combo, but it really is incredible!

** Make this inexpensively using your own homemade yogurt.
