Ingredients

1 bananas, small, ripe, chunks 150 g
1/2 cup blueberries, or other berries 60 g
1/4 cup yogurt, plain, less than 1% M.F. 65 g
1 cup milk, skimmed, 0% 250 mL

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.

Method

  1. Place the banana pieces and blueberries in a food processor or blender. Add the yogurt and milk.
  2. Process on the highest speed until a well-blended purée forms, about 15 seconds, stopping to scrape down the sides of the container once or twice. Taste the mixture, add sugar if desired, then serve.
  3. For a denser smoothie, increase the amount of fruit and yogurt, and reduce the milk.

I decided to use soy milk which is slightly sweetened and it tasted yummy; I'm sure vanilla flavored soy milk would make it even yummier.
