Our whole family starts nearly every day with this thick, delicious smoothie.I tried this recipe today and it was good. I did use regular yogurt instead of honey, maple syrup or white sugar and it still came out good. I also omitted the wheat germ because I didn’t have that either and I also added fat free milk to make it a little thinner. I used fresh strawberries and bananas.
Delicious and great for breakfast! I love finding ways to use wheat germ so this was perfect. To cut down on the fat and calories but not on the taste I used non-fat Greek yogurt.
I used fresh strawberries instead of frozen. I also used an non-fat Greek yogurt which was something new for me, but delicious nonetheless. I didn’t have any wheat germ so I put in a little flax seed instead. This was great and I’m definitely thinking about making it for breakfasts. i found this very thick, so much so that it was impossible to blend without adding some liquid. It is also very sweet, although the flavor is great. 

  • 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 heaping cups fresh strawberries, hulled and rinsed
  • 1 firm banana, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tsp honey, maple syrup or white sugar (plus more to taste)
  • 1 cup of ice (optional)

  • Drop all of the ingredients into the blender jar and blend on the highest speed for 40 seconds. Serve immediately.
