Yummmm. :) I took the suggestions of other reviewers and used 1 T. of sugar, vanilla yogurt, and 1 t. of vanilla extract. I also threw in a banana. It was out of this world! My mom didn't say much... she was too busy downing the glass. :P But afterwards she commented on how good it was. And it was! Good, that is. :D
My husband nor I cared for this drink. It also left a bad taste in our mouth after drinking it. Definitely not a keeper.
I've never been much of a smoothie drinker or breakfast eater but I just might have to rethink that after having this. For me to eat a few strawberries, a glass of milk and some yogurt is too much effort and not all that appealing, but blending them altogether is a whole other story. I used cherry-vanilla yogurt and just a smidge of Equal, and I think the vanilla really contributed to the flavor too. I appreciated the lightness of it - very refreshing and goes down easy. This was simple, but excellent.
This is good, I recommend using Vanilla yogurt unless you like the tartness of the plain yogurt.
Add more strawberries..it'll be like strawberry yogurt if you only put six... I put ten..
I used vanilla low fat yogurt instead of plain yogurt and it was so good. I also tried it with blackberries instead of strawberries and have peaches lined up next. And key lime yogurt to go with the strawberries... mmmm.
I changed it slightly, though-- I only use one tablespoon of sugar.
Kids loved it! For a second batch, we used a package of sweetened frozen strawberries (thawed) along with a banana. Tasted great also and a little quicker to make.
Great base recipe! I cut the sugar in half, added half a banana, and used vanilla yogurt.
