A Smoothie a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

We have smoothies every morning for breakfast.  We have them with muffins, eggs, oatmeal, and cinnamon rolls.  Whatever we are eating for breakfast, we have a smoothie on the side.

The key to having good smoothies is having a good blender.  I love my Oster Fusion from Target.  It is the first blender I've had such a relationship with.  It is worthy of my love because it has a 6 cup glass jar, a 600 watt motor, and pre-programmed settings, which allows me to push a button and walk away--it shuts off when it's done.

These are so good and nutritious--a great way to start the day!

Fruit Smoothie
1 1/2 c. frozen blueberries (Sam's Club has big bags and the best price)
1 1/2 c. frozen strawberries (ditto)
1 c. strawberry yogurt
2 bananas
2-2 1/2 c. milk

This recipe fills my blender--approx. 6 cups.
