Fruity Morning Shakes

These fruit-filled shakes are a delicious (and healthful) way to start the morning.

Ingredients:

  • 1 container (8 ounces) vanilla yogurt
  • 6 strawberries, stems cut off, or 1 small ripe peach, pit removed and cut
      into chunks, or 1 cup blueberries
  • Ice cubes (optional)

Directions:

Be sure an adult is nearby to help.

Put the yogurt and sugar in the container of an electric blender. Add your choice of fruit.

Put the yogurt in the container of an electric blender. Make sure it is on tight! Hold down the lid with your hand (so the lid is not forced off by the spinning liquid) and turn the blender on to high speed. Blend until the shake is thick and smooth.

Fill 1 or 2 glasses with ice cubes, if you want your shake frostier, and pour the shake into the glass(es). Serve immediately. Serves 1 or 2.
