The Best Fruit Smoothie

Sometimes you have to eat fruit smoothies. They got me through the pregnancy nausea (berry smoothies crammed with spinach, because it was the only way I could get any vegetables in my diet). They get me through Texas heat and humidity. And this one wakes me up in the morning. I call it my Sunshine Smoothie. It is not the healthiest one out there. No spinach or "super" foods. But it tastes really, really good and is the perfect compliment to these delicious and healthy muffins or the best french toast in the entire universe that you can find here.

Sunshine Smoothie

* 6-8 strawberries, halved and frozen
* 2 medium bananas, peeled and halved and frozen
* 1 small container (6-8 oz) of mixed berry yogurt (I use yoplait for this but feel free to use a greek yogurt. Try to get a berry flavor other than strawberry though- like raspberry or blackberry or a little bit of both)
* 1 - 2 cups orange juice (depending on how thick you like your smoothies)

Throw everything in a blender and blend it!
Makes 2-4 servings

Believe it or not, I don't have a tall, glass cup to beautifully display the smoothie. So this is going to have to suffice.
