Fruit Smoothie

There is a saying about meals. Eat breakfast like a King.. eat lunch like a Minister and eat dinner like a Queen... which translates to have a heavy breakfast, moderate lunch and a light dinner..
For me I am not a cereal person and to make breakfast every morning is next to impossible because I am not a morning person...I figured out a way to keep me filled..A SMOOTHIE!!!!!!!!! easy to make..serves your daily fruit and most important thing is it is nutritious and keeps me filled and focused..
I tried out a gazillion recipes to make smoothies..common not exactly gazillion..but made many varieties of smoothies. I wanna share one of my favorite smoothie here..

Ingredients

1 Banana
1 Apple
1 cup Grapes
2 cups blueberries
10 strawberries
1 cup yogurt (I prefer mango flavored greek yogurt)
1 cup Milk
3 tablespoons Honey
some Ice

Method

Take all the ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth and creamy. That is it..Pour it into a glass and enjoy your smoothie. So simple right??

Note

You can skip ice. For me I like a chilled smoothie :)..
 I am using blueberries because they serve as good anti-oxidants. Use fresh fruit instead of frozen.

Variation

You can add a dash of lemon juice. Milk can be substituted with any fruit juice.
