Find vanilla yogurt too plain? You can use yogurt smoothies instead of plain vanilla yogurt to suit your taste. Making yogurt smoothies are fun and easy.
The first thing you will need is a quality blender which can chop ice cubes. For making smoothie first add some fruit juice in the blender. Then add almost an equal amount of vanilla yogurt, and some frozen fruits. Add some ice cubes and then blend the mixture until smooth.
You can experiment with various frozen fruits and fruit juices till you get your ideal smoothie recipe. Additives like chocolate syrup, or peanut butter can make smoothies even better.
Frozen fruit cubes
Next time while planning to make some smoothies, use your ice tray to freeze fruit juices and have frozen fruit cubes at hand. The texture of the smoothie will be even better.
Are you a diet junkie? You can alter the ingredients a bit and have your own diet smoothies. Sunflower seeds and banana are excellent additives for diet type smoothies. Use non fat yogurt instead of regular ones. And for fruits, use apple juice, blueberries. To increase nutritional value, you can add additives like protein powder and bee pollen in your smoothie.
Note: Keep in mind though that your smoothie should not have a very strong flavour. The cones are best enjoyed with plain vanilla yogurt or smoothies with a subtle flavour, otherwise, strong flavours overwhelm the natural taste of fruits.
