This is a very simple smoothie recipe, which I always make for breakfast. Only the flavor differs some days. This is a very filling drink and gives a good kick start for the day. Some times I also make a mixture of berries.
Actually smoothies are very rich drink, but I have tried to make it as a low calorie drink by adding lot fat Yogurt and 0 calorie sweetener. There are many ways to make smoothies; some make it with milk and some with only fruits. I love to add plain Yogurt to my smoothies. I fell that blackberry has some what a bland flavor, so I like to add a dash of vanilla.
Blackberry – ½ cup
Low fat Yoghurt – 1 cup
Vanilla extract – ½ teaspoon
Skim milk – ¼ cup
0 calorie sweetener (splenda) – 1 teaspoon
Whipped cream for garnish – optional
Blend all the above ingredients except whipped cream. Strain it if necessary. Pour it on the glass and garnish with whipped cream.
