Fruit Smoothie

Post # 35
My grandsons, 8 & 9, are spending a couple of weeks with me. Travis has just been dying to make a fruit smoothie so we googled smoothies and found Emeril......
Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2006
* show: Emeril LiveEpisode: Emeril's Fruit Stand
Rated: 5 stars out of 5
Prep Time: 10 min Level: Easy Yield: 6 servings

* 1 cup whole milk
* 1 cup plain yogurt
* 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
* 1/4 cup honey
* 2 bananas, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
* 1 pint fresh strawberries
* 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 1 to 2 cups crushed ice


In a large-capacity blender combine all of the ingredients and puree until smooth. (Alternatively, puree in batches if necessary.) Serve the smoothies in chilled tall glasses.

I guess some of us didn't know what to expect........ but it was a very pretty pink drink. I don't like milk at all and would have much rather just had the fruit. Becky & Trey, who drink smoothies, liked it.
