1cupwhole frozen strawberriesabout 10 large berries or mixed berries of choice
1medium ripe bananapeeled and cut in half
¾cupnonfat plain Greek yogurt
1tablespoonpeanut butter or almond butter
1 to 2teaspoonshoney
Water or unsweetened almond milkas needed
Place all of the ingredients but the ice in a blender: strawberries, banana, Greek yogurt, oatmeal, peanut butter, and 1 teaspoon honey.
Blend until smooth. Depending upon the size and power of your blender, you may need to stop it and scrape down the pitcher a couple of times. If the mixture is too thick to blend, splash in a little water or almond milk, stir to move the contents of the blender around, and blend again; if it is too thin, blend in a few ice cubes. Taste and add additional honey if you would like the smoothie sweeter. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
TO MAKE AHEAD: Blend the smoothie up to 1 day in advance and store in the refrigerator in an airtight jar. The less air, the better.
TO MAKE AHEAD AND FREEZE: Prepare the smoothie as directed, pour into an ice cube tray, and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, add the smoothie ice cubes to the blender with a little water or almond milk, and blend.
Prepare the smoothie as directed and pour into freezer-safe mason jars. Place sealed jars in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
For easy breakfasts and snacks, you can also blend the smoothie as directed and pour it into popsicle mold plastic bags (like these) or popsicle mold containers. Freeze for up to 3 months, and grab and go as needed.
