The weather here has been so warm lately it feels like summer has started already. And when hot weather is here, what better way to cool off than a nice cold fruit smoothie?
This simple smoothie recipe is one I invented when I didn't have the ingredients on hand for the recipes I was finding online.
You will need:
- a blender
- 1 banana (fresh out of the freezer, if you've got em)
- soy milk
- ice cubes
Darn those ice cubes right by the blades! But, moving on...
I used about 1/3 to 1/2 of the little scoop that comes in the TANG.
Ah... delicious, sweet orange flavoring. Adds a nice color, to. And I won't go into the vitamins it contains, but in our house, we look at TANG as a very good thing.
Next comes the soy milk. Pour it in. This is where the recipe is very adaptable. Start with a little soy, and if you want the consistency more fluid later, you can add some more.
Be careful if you are cutting up frozen bananas like I am here. (I only ended up using one, by the way.)
Looks kinda unappetizing just sitting there in the blender... but here is where the magic happens.
Set your blender to "smoothie" and blend until smooth.
