Smoothies instead of Shakes

I must admit I am a goodie hound. I love sweet treats, must be why I am so sweet myself lol. But I am trying to switch my thinking to be more healthier. Instead of making milk shakes with ice cream I am now making Smoothies using yogurt.

As a frugal mama I cannot waste anything especially fruit! Over the summer our bananas seemed to go brown faster than we could eat them. So each time I would put it whole into the freezer. Also we purchased fresh fruit when it was a great sale and froze that as well. I purchased some large tubs of vanilla yogurt at Safeway using coupons and my rewards card for a great deal.

This smoothie we used bananas, strawberries, yogurt, a few rasperries, and some milk. I did not add any extra sugar since we are trying to cut back on that as well. It was really good. The vanilla yogurt helped sweeten the tartness of the strawberries.

Plus its cheaper than Jamba Juice and you don't have to leave the house!

So I say forget the ice cream shakes and switch to smoothies for a yummy and frugal way to enjoy a nice treat.
