Leslie's Breakfast Smoothie

Recipe from: Mary Ann

1 whole banana
1 ½ cup strawberries
1 cup vanilla soy milk
2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate — just scoop it right out of the container, keeping it in my freezer
1 cup vanilla yogurt
½ cup any other fruits that sound good at the time — blackberries, mango, and blueberries all work very well

Place all of the ingredients in the mixer and blend until smooth. Watch out for lumps of frozen fruit that haven't yet been blended — they're sneaky. Remember, as well, that yogurt smoothies separate after they've been sitting for a while, so this is not a make-ahead beverage. Pour into a cup and run! Makes one humongous smoothie or two moderately sized ones.

Note:
People who write smoothie books often recommend that all fruit is first frozen before it's added to the blender. this way the thick consistency of the smoothie is maintained. It also keeps perishable fruit from falling victim to fruit flies and mold)
