Strawberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Since I was thinking about breakfast ideas the other day, I've been making myself smoothies.  I tend to drink a lot of smoothies when the weather is warm, and forget about them during the winter.  Since I've discovered that my son loves them however, I've decided that they're a great way to get some fruit into his system in the morning. 

Strawberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie
1 banana, cut in chunks
1/2 cup strawberries, washed, hulled and halved
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup milk (or rice milk or other non-dairy milk)
2 ice cubes

Put ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  I've had to tweak the recipe a little because my son can't have dairy, so I substitute 1 cup of vanilla rice milk for the yogurt and milk.  If using frozen fruit, omit ice cubes.  Adjust milk to desired thickness.  I like my smoothies thick enough to eat with a spoon, but my son likes them thin like juice. 

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the yummiest!
