Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie

I had an idea come to mind about how I wanted to use this organic simply balanced vanilla yogurt pouches so I thought why not cut up some fresh fruit, pour the yogurt into the blender and make a smoothie out of it this is nothing I have done before. It’s not too bad I actually like vanilla as a flavor I just don’t like it as a scent.

I know we’re used to green looking smoothies and juices but because the yogurt is vanilla flavored it doesn’t have much of a color and the white colored fruits overpowered the plum I used. Some people are like what is that umm a smoothie just like making any other smoothies.

I’m impressed because I came up with my own recipe I didn’t go searching through Pinterest or anyone’s cookbook I put together a bunch of fruit I eat and used yogurt as the liquid base. Here you have it don’t knock it until you try it, I mean you put fruit in your yogurt or no? but if these are not your ingredients I completely understand.

Strawberry Lemonade Over Blended Icee 

Picking out flavors can be endless I always like to match so I did Strawberry everything. It’s your choice you can mix and match to your taste buds if you like. What kind of drink are you in need of?

Here’s what I did:

I have tried to figure out what to do with these mason jars so I went on Pinterest to see if I found anything. I saw cute ideas but I didn’t find anything I thought interesting enough to make. I knew I wanted to make something slushy/smoothie.

I sugared the rim

I dumped the ice tray in the blender (not the actual ice tray) I can’t tell you how many ice cubes to use. If it gets a little to liquidity just add more ice.

I cut up some strawberries and added them to the already crushed ice and Strawberry Lemonade and blended them right in.

The Smirnoff is optional. I know there are people from all walks of life that read my blog and I’m not judging you for NOT drinking alcohol and those I don’t want to see relapse because of temptation (sidenote: I am not your enemy). Or maybe you’re just pregnant and can’t drink. The choice is yours. Choose wisely. 21 + up
