Yoghurt Week - Day Four

It's day four of Yoghurt Week.

After my first post, Helen from Fuss Free Flavours suggested I use some yoghurt, frozen banana and berries to make a smoothie. I thought it was a great idea, so here is my fruit bowl smoothie. More fridge and freezer smoothie really as the bananas were in the freezer and the strawberries and cherries were in the fridge, but you get the idea, don't you? Any fruit would do.

Fruit Bowl Smoothie

2 frozen bananas (chopped before frozen)
12 ripe strawberries
12 pitted cherries
juice of 1 orange
1 cup Total Greek Yoghurt
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Whizz all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour and serve.

Serves 4

The smoothie was lovely and gone in a flash.

Cooper enjoyed the smoothie too.


  1. Love how your have served it in a martini glass - you sure there wasn't anything else added to that recipe lol

  2. Not this time Chele, but it bears thinking about :D

  3. That smoothie looks wonderful.

    Cooper is tooo cute and red really suits him!


  4. Thanks Maria, I think Cooper is cute too, but then I am biased :)

  5. Love the style of a martini glass. I am going to use one for my breakfast smoothie tomorrow!

    I love frozen bananas and get quite anxious when there are none in the freezer.

  6. Cooper is such a cutie pie.. Smoothie is so perfect for this insane summer.

  7. It was a great idea Helen and a new one to me too. I will be keeping a supply of them in the freezer from now on. Who knew?!!!

    Thanks RV :0

  8. I love yogurt and fruit smoothies. Cooper is a doll! :)

  9. Pretty boy! And I love the cinnamon, nice touch.

  10. wow that open mouth is impressive - I just hope cooper got to drink out of that fancy cocktail glass :-)

  11. Hi Susan, I don't usually add this much yoghurt to my smoothies, but it was really good. Lovely and thick.

    Hey Claire, the cinnamon really added to the flavour, it was lovely.

    I think he may have ended up wearing the smoothie if he had tried Johanna, no my mum gave him some on a spoon. As you can see from the wide mouth, she wasn't spooning it in fast enough as far as Cooper was concerned :)

  12. I don't know what looks more yummy Cooper or the smoothie?......yep, Cooper bags it! Looks lovely Jac - you have done great on this yoghurt week. Lucie x

  13. We do something similar to make a summer treat. We'll blend fresh fruit with yogurt and then freeze in popsicle makers. Great healthy summer snack !

  14. Hi the H's, Oh, now that is a really great idea! I am off to buy ice lolly moulds :)
