Are you searching for a perfect mid afternoon treat? Check this Blueberry Banana Yogurt Smoothie Recipe, it’s both healthy and delicious!
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 blueberry banana yogurt smoothie recipe 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.
