There are so many things I love about this smoothie. Let me count the ways…

  1. It takes less than 5 minutes to prepare.
  2. It’s packed with nutrients, including: protein, calcium, dietary fiber, potassium, iron, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin B6, and lots of vitamin C!
  3. Frozen bananas are used rather than ice, so the smoothie is creamy rather than watered down.
  4. It’s very rich and filling, but low in fat.
  5. It’s delicious, and kid-friendly.
  6. It’s an excellent pre- and post-workout drink, breakfast drink, or mid-day snack.
  7. It features Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt, my favorite yogurt.

Give it a try, and let me know what you think. Feel free to try other fruit combinations as well. Sometimes I like to add chopped ripe Ataulfo mango for a sweeter, dessert-like drink.
