Hmmm, not sure why the Dannon Oikos photo of their smoothie is so brilliant strawberry-red. Not that it matters, but it's not...it's more "pretty in pastel pink." I make smoothies for Hubs on weekend mornings which he always welcomes when he's in our home study working. It's an easy and nutritious way for him to eat breakfast and not skip a beat "on the job." Today, however, while he still appreciated this cool smoothie on his throat, he was not able to offer his usual review since he's sick and his taste buds are shot. I can (cuz I'm not sick). As far as I'm concerned, this is probably one of the better smoothies I've ever made, but do consider that I doubled up on all three fruits, essentially using only half the amount of yogurt called for, effectively toning down the slightly sour tang of most smoothies I dislike. Also, the more rare addition of peaches to a (boring) strawberry-banana smoothie was a refreshing change. What it did was give the smoothie a new flavor all it's own, hence, I'm sure, why the submitter calls this a "Sweet Summer Smoothie." In addition to reducing the amount of yogurt by half, I also gave it a squirt of honey to sweeten it up. After making this I now will make a point of freezing up some peaches so I can make this on a whim.
