Berry Yogurt Smoothie

Berry Yogurt Smoothie
i've been making smoothies rather frequently these days. i see it as an alternative to eating something i don't like and in this case its plain yogurt and strawberries.

Strawberries
you may think that its understandable that many people will not like plain yogurt but strawberries? afterall they're sweet, juicy and aromatic. well, not if you live in this part of the world where strawberries either come half ripened or even as they look red and inviting, they're usually anything but. its almost an impossible task to get really good strawberries if they're between $2-$5 a punnet. of course, the $19.90 ones from japan would be a different story altogether. but i still find myself buying yogurt and (cheap) strawberries often coz they're good for health and i even read somewhere that strawberries can actually whiten teeth!

Berry Yogurt Smoothie
this is a really simple recipe that uses just a few ingredients. i'm intending to level it up by adding protein shake powder and wheatgerm next time.

recipe adapted from here.

I know what you mean..I am in the US now and we get strawberries throughout the year but the only really edible ones are those that come in summer. rest of the time, as you said, they are mostly NOT sweet!! I love smoothies too.. and with yogurt that is such a healthy version!

The smoothie sounds delicious. Although it sounds a little odd, spinach smoothies are my favorite! Yogurt, berries, bananas, pineapple juice, and a handful of spinach is quite delicious. Your photography is gorgeous!

I have just bought a new blender for my daughter to make smoothies. She doesn't like to eat fruit but don't mine drinking it. What an opportune time that you post this! I love the shade of the smoothie. Will make this for my daughter and myself too! Thanks for sharing. :)
