Berry Banana Smoothie in a Bowl

A few weeks ago, I “discovered” strawberry banana soft serve. Up to that point, I had only had “regular” banana soft serve, and I loved the color and the taste that the strawberries added. I asked for suggestions as to what to add to banana soft serve in the comments, and several of you suggested Greek yogurt for some protein. Great idea! There were also other amazing suggestions, and I can’t wait to try them over the next weeks…

I had a giant bag of mixed organic berries from Costco in the freezer. I decided to use lots of berries and lots of yogurt, so the end result was less a soft serve but more a cold smoothie in a bowl. Hubby and the toddler loved it!

Berry Banana Smoothie in a Bowl

  • 1/2 cup frozen berries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • Put the frozen berries in a food processor and puree.
  • Add the frozen banana and the yogurt and work until smooth.
  • Enjoy! Smile 
Servings: 2
Prep Time: 2 minutes

I loved the color of this smoothie! The mixed berries and the yogurt gave it the most amazing shade of pink! And I love pink! Smile

Instead of a question, I ask you to hug someone you love right now. As I was writing this post, I got a phone call from my sister. My sister is not one to call out of the blue, so I got a knot in my stomach right away. My dad was admitted to the hospital today. They found a tumor behind his eye yesterday, and the doctors believe it has likely spread. He’ll have to have surgery and start radiation next week. We don’t know much at this point, and he’ll undergo more testing in the next few days. Being on another continent makes this even harder… I love living here, but in times like these, I really hate being so far away from home… Not sure how much I’ll get around to your blogs or how often I’ll update my blog…

Be well,
