Banana Smoothie!

What better way to start your morning than a refreshing home-blended smoothie? It's delicious, filling, good for you, and super easy to make. You can pretty much use any fruits or vegetables, in endless combinations. I personally stick to the fruit-based smoothies since I haven't quite acquired the taste for the veggie ones (e.g., my dad's bell pepper smoothie - no thanks). Anyway, we tested out the boyfriend's new blender / food processor this morning with this simple banana smoothie recipe.

1 banana
3 cups soy milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sugar to taste

Toss everything into the blender and mix until smooth!

Who needs Jamba Juice?

If you want a sweeter drink, you can try using sweetened strawberries, or a scoop of vanilla yogurt in place of the vanilla extract. If you have any smoothie ideas, please send them over!
