Michelle's Fantabulous Smoothie

I am a smoothie connoisseur. I love them. I love the fruit and the juice, blended together to create something that tastes delicious and is refreshing and...smooth. However, in all my years of trying smoothies at various places, I have yet to find one that tastes as good as my own. So, it is after much deliberation and consideration that I bequeath unto you all my favorite way to eat summer fruit.

yield: 1 serving

1/2 banana, sliced
1 peach, skinned
1/4 cup blueberries
4 strawberries
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt

1. Place all ingredients in a blender; blend. Drink. Ahh.

**These fruits can be modified to suit one's taste; i.e., you can, if you prefer, experiment with raspberries, blackberries, nectarines, etc. However, I personally think that other berries have too many seeds. Cherries, however, are wonderful in this. The banana and yogurt are crucial, the orange juice helps it not be too thick or too sweet. The recipe is best if at least one of the berries is frozen, because that makes the drink cooler and more refreshing. Enjoy!**
