This is my first time participating in the Secret Recipe Club where each month you are assigned a food blog and on the selected day you are to post a recipe from that food blogger. This month’s I was assigned Lynn’s blog from Cafe Lynnylu. She’s had the blogging running since 2005 (wow) and aside from numerous recipes also features beautiful photographs.
I bookmarked a lot of recipe from her site but ending up selecting this one for the SRC. I don’t make smoothies nearly as often as D would like so I knew he would definitely appreciate a Sunday afternoon fruity drink. A fair reward for his Whole Foods outing to do the grocery shopping for the week.
Most of the ingredients in this smoothie are pretty standard; Greek yogurt, blueberries, bananas, but what really intrigued me was the addition of apple juice. Not a regular in the smoothie world, the apple juice really did provide a subtle hint of appley goodness. Luckily I had some fresh apples laying around so I just made fresh squeezed juice to add to the smoothie. Not sure how this would work with bottled juice but it’s definitely a welcome addition when it’s freshly made.
Overall a delicious summer drink and a great recipe to celebrate my first Secret Recipe Club post.
- ½ cup fresh blueberries
- ¾ cup 2% Greek yogurt
- ¾ cup fresh squeezed apple juice
- 1 medium banana, sliced in 1 inch thick slices
- 1-2 teaspoons honey
- Add all ingredients to blender and puree until smooth.
