Good nutrition can be fun, flavorful, fast and affordable!



with strawberry & banana
The smoothie was created in the late 1960’s by Steve Kuhnau, founder of Smoothie King, who began experimenting with mixing real fruit, nutrients, and proteins in a blender at home trying to remedy his allergies and low blood sugar.

Unlike fruit juice, smoothies use the fruit in its entirety, so you get the benefits of nutrients from the skin (apples) and dietary fibers. This recipe is very versatile, so don’t be afraid to experiment with various ingredients. It’s pretty hard to get this one wrong.

  1/2 pound fresh strawberries, caps removed
  1 banana, peeled
  1 1/2 cups frozen vanilla yogurt
  1 cup crushed ice


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Time Saver

Whenever you have leftover berries, consider freezing them so you can use them in your next smoothie.

Fun Variations

Toss in some blackberries, raspberries, and/or blueberries.

Add a small orange, peeled.

Throw in some apple slices. They’re good for you and you wont even know they’re there.

Some people suggest adding sugar or honey to taste. We don’t think it’s necessary with all the natural sweetness of the fruits. But it’s your smoothie, so try it if you like.
