Yummy Greek Yogurt Smoothie Recipe

 

My daughter is going to camp this summer and it starts a lot earlier than we are used to getting up. I made some Greek yogurt smoothies that are a grab-and-go breakfast for us in the morning. Normally, I have time for elaborate eggs and pancake making in the morning, but that all changed this summer. Now that I have discovered how yummy this green yogurt smoothie is, I have been drinking them non-stop to beat the heat. We even packed them on our road trip to Orlando. Gotta love when you make a recipe that immediately becomes part of your routine.

My routine starts with my bi weekly visit to Publix. Truthfully, it is more like 3 times per week. I am a food blogger and they always have what I need. The people are always friendly and helpful. At my Publix, everyone knows me and my daughter from our many grocery trips. This week, I grabbed some fresh spinach that is pre-washed 3 times, fresh mangoes, bananas, and Yoplait® Greek Yogurt.

Freezing Fruit

We eat as many ripe bananas and mangoes as we can through the week. Sometimes the bananas and other fruits start getting too ripe and instead of tossing them and wasting the fruit, I freeze them. I like to freeze my banana, mangoes, and any other fruit that I know will be yummy in a Simple Green Smoothie. I cut the fruits into bite-size pieces so that the blender will take them down with ease when they become part of a yummy smoothie later.

Freezing Bananas for Smoothies

  • Start by washing the outside of the banana. Some people skip this step, but I wash every piece of fruit in my house.
  • Peel the banana.
  • Cut the banana into 3 pieces.
  • Add the cut pieces into a small freezer bag.
  • Add an expiration date 3 months from today onto the bag with a sharpie.
  • Let fruit freeze for 24 hours.

Freezing Mangoes for Smoothies

When you are freezing mangoes it depends on how ripe the mango is. If it is really soft, you can just peel it by hand like you would an orange. Then, slide the mango guts into a freezer bag. Add an expiration date 3 months from today onto the bag with a sharpie. Let fruit freeze for 24 hours.

  • Start by washing the outside of the mango.
  • Slice the mango into 3 pieces.
  • Then, dice the mango into cubes.  
  • Add the cut pieces into a small freezer bag.
  • Add an expiration date 3 months from today onto the bag with a sharpie.
  • Let fruit freeze for 24 hours.
