Not sure why I put so many "o"'s except to emphasize the "oooooooooooh" part of smoothie. One of my favorite hot-weather treats is a cool, refreshing fruit and yogurt smoothie, made slightly differently each time, but with these approximate proportions:

I-Need-A Smoothie

1/2 cup plain yogurt
one banana, sliced
handful of frozen fruit (5 - 6 strawberries, for example)
vanilla (1/2 tsp.?)
sugar to taste (start with a TBSP; depends on sweetness of fruit)
milk to cover (maybe another 1/2 cup?)

Throw everything in a blender and whiz until smooth. Really, this is not a science. I get a slightly different taste and texture each time. What's important is that it is cold and fruity and takes less than five minutes to make. YUM!

Yields one very large serving or two of the size pictured.
