D-Feast Friday: Blueberry Banana Smoothie

This is a delicious and nutritious drink that makes frequent appearances at our breakfast table.  Truth be told it is also an occasional after supper dessert.  It is just so darn delicious that my girls ask for it often and I am thankful for that.  There are far worse things they could crave.  Jenna, being a lover of anything ‘berry’ is always game for this little bit of heaven in a tumbler.

Blueberry, Banana Smoothie

1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt, nonfat
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (I prefer frozen to give it that frosty texture
1 banana, medium, ripe
(I’ve been known to sneak in a couple table spoons of wheat germ now and then for an extra punch of nutrition.)

Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth and creamy.  Serve immediately.

*For a variation, try frozen mango pieces or strawberries!

Makes 4 servings with 23 carbs per serving.
