Healthy Strawberry Smoothie

My kids love that I cook and I am always eager to have them help me in the kitchen and taste my creations. I encourage them to be creative and come up with their own recipes. One of the best times I have, every year, is making birthday cakes for my kids. They come up with a theme or idea and I figure out how to make it. In a future post I will show my collection of cakes I have made over the years.

Tonight my daughter Emily wanted to make, for her evening treat, a fresh strawberry smoothie. We had a bunch of fresh strawberries on hand, and some honey flavored Greek style yogurt, Greek Gods brand http://www.greekgodsyogurt.com/html/. The smoothie was simple, easy and she loved it. This would be great for a healthy afternoon snack.
Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup fresh strawberries (trimmed and quartered). You could use frozen if necessary

3/4 cup Greek Gods Honey flavored Greek style yogurt

1/2 cup milk (I use 1%)

1/4 teaspoon Rodelle brand vanilla extract (any brand will do)

Directions:

Place all ingredients in blender. Blend on medium until smooth. Garnish with dollop of whipped topping and a sliced strawberry.
