Easy Breezy Fruit Smoothies

It is Friday, the end of our week off and our pond is nearly done. We worked a little slowly this week as the heat wave sapped much of our energy. We now have water and a few plants and are off the local quarry outlet for capping stones. After that we are building a little bridge to house the electrical.
We had a bit of a relief in the weather yesterday but it is gearing up to be hot again today. To help keep you cool today, I am offering easy breezy fruit smoothies.

Easy Breezy Fruit Smoothies

2 ripe bananas
8 hulled strawberries - more if tiny
1 cup plain low fat yogurt
2 heaping tbsp wheat germ - it will blend in, I promise.
2 cups ice - divided

Put all ingredients in blender - reserving 1 cup ice. Blend until smooth. Add second cup ice and blend again.
You can sweeten - only if your fruit is not sweet enough on it's own - with a little honey or superfine sugar.

Stay cool, friends.
