Groovy Smoothie

In means to create a more upbeat and fun user friendly blog, I will be adding a tasty twist to each of my blog entries from now on.  After each blog I will add a recipe for a smoothie!  Ever since I fell in love with my Vita-Mix blender at that Sam's Club demonstration years ago, I have made hundreds of smoothies, experimenting along the way.  If only smoothie books could make me millions! Ha!
Anyway, each smoothie recipe will make for 2 people, or 1 if you're up for a movie marathon (I would never be opposed!).  Feel free to experiment and and your own personal touch, too.  I always love to add an extra scoop of strawberries or if I'm feeling dangerous, a few scoops of ice cream.  If you end up liking them or changing them up a bit, leave a comment!

So here goes...we'll start out pretty simple this first time:

Strawberry Banana
1 banana
1 cup strawberries (frozen or fresh is up to you; I used fresh, but maybe if using frozen add less ice.)
1/2 cup (vanilla) yogurt
1/2 cup milk (mix of apple or orange juice with milk adds extra kick)
2 tsp honey
pinch of cinnamon
1 cup ice
