Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie

Fruit & Yogurt Smoothie

My smoothies are popular in my household. I am thankful for that because smoothies are easy and healthy to make! A blender is super helpful; my housemate gave me hers as a parting gift. Then the other stuff is yogurt, fresh as well as frozen fruit, and a touch of coconut oil.

These days, I am using whole milk yogurt, because I need the calories for nursing and I feel like a bit of fat never hurt anyone. I know people push skim this and that and as little fat as possible. But, in my non-medical-expert, layperson opinion, I believe our bodies need a little bit of fat. Just a little.

Other ingredients I used in this batch: frozen strawberries and fresh fruit (bananas, blueberries, mango).

Also added in a teaspoon of coconut oil, for its health benefits.
