Banana Berry Smoothie

When summer temperatures spike, I can't hardly fathom hot breakfasts. I am ready for something cold and refreshing right away. Smoothies are a great way to get a cool, easy, and healthy meal first thing in the morning. You can change up the types of fruit to suit what you like and what you have on hand. There's only one given in making smoothies for me--they must have banana. It makes the smoothie creamy, smooth, and rich.

1/4 c. skim milk

1 banana, broken into chunks

I am so with you on the cold breakfast thing. I've had a recent obsession with yogurt. Maybe smoothies are next!

Smoothies are my absolute favorite after a run on a hot day. I'm just incredibly bummed I don't have a blender here :(

Thanks for this recipe! I have a ton of frozen berries that I've been stocking away the past month during sales. This is a perfect way to use some!
