When my kids were teens, I taught them to do the same, using less yogurt, and more frozen fruit, and it came out like a soft ice cream. They learned to adjust the amount of yogurt to their own liking....and it was always unflavoured yogurt. I always kept frozen strawberries, peaches, bananas, and berries, and any other useful fruit, in the freezer.
You're right, it's WONDERFUL! And healthy, and it doesn't need any sugar at ALL!! Low fat, too.
Viola, I was thinking that I'd like to try some different fruits. We were talking about buying some of the frozen sweetened strawberries that you use for Strawberry Shortcake and trying those.
Jillie, I really think it won't be as good without freezing the fruit. You can blend it down to the consistency you want, even with it frozen...just whirl the dickens out of it, :)
They are really delicious. As soon as I got back to work tonight, Leisa asked when we were making more peach smoothies. Think I've created a monster? :)
Star, these do sound good. I can't wait until it warms up enough to make them. I like to serve smoothies with breakfast, if the rest of breakfast is light. With our temps in the 30's it is just too cold now. Soon I hope.
I agree...30 is too cold for something this icy! :)
We've been up in the low 80's in the day time already, although that's backed down to the upper 60's and low 70's. But warm enough to enjoy these.
They're really more like a peach shake than a breakfast drink, Ro, :)....Your kids will think they're having ice cream for breakfast, LOL. Ok, my kid would like that....never mind that I said anything, Ha.
Talkin' about smoothies, Star, how about this easy thing that we have all the time for breakfast?
Whirl, and add a splash of cold water if it seems too thick and isn't whirling properly. You could add some crushed ice if you like. No need to dirty any measuring cups. We had this for breakfast this morning! (If you are into protein powder or stuff like that, you could also throw that in.)

Star, Lol! my kids wouldn't mind having a shake for breakfast either. Our temps don't look promising, 60's tomorrow then dropping way down for the weekend. DH told me snow is predicted for Sunday. If you want to swap weather I could help you out. May and snow should not be used in the same sentence.
Dorothy, your smoothie also sounds delicious. I try to keep some frozen fruit in the house all the time. I just need the yogurt and the warm temperatures to try both of these. I'm also waiting to try the oatmeal blueberry smoothie that was posted recently. Soon I hope.
Yes to these for breakfast! Why not. I made my smoothie last night just so it would be thin this am. I think I'll still try it the way I suggested Star. If I don't like it I can put it in the frieezer then.. I make mine similar to Dorothy's but have never added vanilla. Yum! Thanks all~
Dorothy, those sound wonderful. Thank you!
Ro, I cannot believe you're having snow this late in the year. :(. I hope it warms up for you soon.
Jill, you guys have convinced me. I'm having ice cream for breakfast, :)
About the only fruits so far that I've come across that DON'T make a good smoothie would be grapes and watermelon. We had mango, stawberry, banana with vanilla yogurt and milk most recently. Bought mango fresh, sliced at Costco (so youknow how much we had). Ate on the mango for a couple days then froze the rest and now it's in smoothies! If you're in need of a stick-with-you portable breakfast, try adding soy protein powder.
Smoothies are just a ton of fun to make because they're never quite the same every time. At least not at my house. Yogurt depending on what flavor we have, fruit, depending on how much of any given variety.
I buy yogurt in little cups for my son, and to take for lunches to work, but for smoothies I buy a big quart size tub. It costs about as much as three little cups of yogurt!
