In the December 2004 issue of Midwest Living, there was a recipe for a Sunrise Smoothie. It's one that is served to guests at Sundara Inn and Spa in Wisconsin Dells.
Sunrise Smoothie that I made.
I've had this recipe now for over nine years and finally am getting around to trying it. I shouldn't have waited! This smoothie is very easy to make and absolutely delicious. It is one that we will definitely be making again.
This is how to make the Sunrise Smoothie:
1 cup orange juice
1 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1 cup fresh or unsweetened frozen strawberries
2 medium bananas, peeled, cut up and frozen
1 teaspoon ground flax seed, optional (we didn't use)
6-8 ice cubes
fresh strawberries, optional (we didn't use)
In a blender, combine juice, yogurt, frozen strawberries, bananas, and flax seed. Cover and blend until pureed.
With blender running, add ice cubes through feed tube, one cube at a time until desired consistency. If you would like to garnish with strawberries, you may do so.
Serves 3 or 4.
