Yogurt Smoothie

6-8 frozen strawberries (or whatever your favorite fruit(s) are)
If you have a few fresh strawberries that adds to the flavor
6 ice cubes
2 containers of yogurt-I usually do strawberry, peach, strawberry banana, raspberry, etc.
Orange juice maybe 1-2 cups. (It'll depend on how you like it, more yogurty, more slushy...)
Half a banana or a whole one if you like a lot of banana flavor

Blend and enjoy!

I make this for me and my two little boys-it takes up about 2/3 of the blender.
This recipe doesn't have exact amounts, because it depends on how many you are making and the consistency you prefer-thick, thin, runny,etc. So feel free to add more yogurt or OJ or ice cubes or fruit.
