Three-Fruit Smoothies

Prep/Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 3 servings

2 cartons (6 ounces each) fat-free reduced-sugar cherry-vanilla yogurt
1 small banana, halved
3/4 fresh or frozen blueberries
1 Tbsp honey
15 ice cubes

In a blender, combine the yogurt, banana, blueberries and honey; cover and process until smooth. While processing, add a few ice cubes at a time until mixture achieves desired thickness. Serve immediately.

Tips and Tricks
Smoothies are a great way to get fruit into your diet and also a way I get my picky son to eat fruit that he normally won't touch.
Make It Healthier
Add some wheat germ or ground flaxseed while processing.
