Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen blackberries (or fresh)
  • 2 bananas (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt

Instructions

  • Peel and dice the bananas.
  • Add the Greek yogurt to your blender, along with diced bananas and blackberries. When blending smoothies, I prefer to place the softest ingredients in the bottom, as this helps the smoothie blend nicely. I suggest adding the yogurt first, followed by fresh ingredient, and leaving the frozen ingredient to last.
  • Blend until smooth. Depending on the make and model of your blender this can take from 20 seconds to 2 minutes. Use a spoon to push the ingredients down or scrape down the edges as required.
  • Pour the smoothie into glasses, and serve!

Notes

  • A good blender is essential. You might be able to make your smoothie with an immersion blender or a food processor, but a regular stand blender is best suited for the job.
  • Smoothies taste best when you use very ripe bananas. Ideally they should have at least a few black spots. Avoid using green, or bright yellow bananas.
  • You can store leftover smoothie in a sealed jug or bottle in your refrigerator for up to a day.
