Citrus Squeeze Smoothie

good morning!

This Sunset magazine has been splayed out on my kitchen counter over the past few weeks…tempting me.

Today was the day that I bowed down and gave in.

a year of living well

I’ve heard soo many people coughing these days that I figured it’s time to get my immunity boost!

Reading that there was a frozen banana in the mix had me sold. Orange banana smoothies are by far my favorite combo.

I already had a huge mess in the kitchen to clean up, what’s a little more?

So get your ingredients ready-

what goes into the smoothie

Juice those oranges!!!  I used satsumas cuz that’s what I had.

Get your frozen banana ready, and toss it into the blender. Freeze one the night before!

Add the juices and honey into the blender.

hi honey! how are you?

Follow that with a nice big scoop of Greek yogurt. You are almost there.

Now get your ice.  Toss it in and PARTY!


Pour the smoothie into a large glass…or two small ones…

pouring it in

And you have yourself a creamy & zingy smoothie.

That’s right baby, look at that froth!

You won’t be disappointed.  The taste is fab!  It’s quite refreshing.  And the tartness of the citrus and yogurt is a heavenly match with that little bit of honey and banana.  I am smitten. And hopefully I will be immune to those germs….
