Strawberry Yogurt Smootie

So my cravings have had a VAST range over the last few months (most not so healthy unfortunately!), but there's one I should have expected. 


Smoothies. 


I LOVE smoothies. The employees at the smoothie place at ISU saw me from across the Commons and would just start making my smoothie. I was there literally everyday. It was fabulous. 


Well, for Christmas, my wonderful hubby got me a GE Single Serving Blender. He was looking through the book at all the great recipes...all I saw was single serving smoothie maker! 


This recipe is SUPER simple and a mix of an old recipe I had and my personal tweaks to it to make it oober yummy...via trial and error of course. 






Start with 1/2 Cup of your favorite vanilla yogurt (or if Wal-Mart has stopped carrying your favorite AGAIN, second best will do) for each smoothie.



Next up is 1/4 Cup of Milk each



Then add 2 teaspoons of brown sugar each.




Now you need to cut up some strawberries...depending on the size, I usually use 4-6 per smoothie...and toss them in.





Top with ice...Aren't they pretty :)




Then screw the lid with the blending blade on and put on the base to blend!






And this is what you get...




Put the drinking lip on the blender cup...




and serve to the anxiously awaiting Michael (aren't I a good wife, serving my husband first, even though it is MY craving?! ;) )
