It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia (and Banana Split Smoothies)

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia might be the most popular TV show in the city, but it is also the best way to describe the day we had yesterday.  It was a bit dreary and rainy this morning but once the clouds burned off, it turned into the perfect early spring day.  Overall, Mother Nature has been nothing but kind to us this winter.  Even so we are anticipating the warm and sun as much as ever this year.  It may only be the beginning of March, but it feels a lot more like April!

So how does a Spatularette spend the quintessential spring Saturday?  Yesterday it was watching the Phillies spring training game on TV, a long run on Kelly Drive, and making these Banana Split Smoothies!

-6 oz cup vanilla Greek yogurt, frozen
-1 banana
-1 cup whole frozen strawberries
-8 oz can crushed pineapple (with juices)
-1 1/2 Tbs chocolate syrup
-splash of milk

Combine all ingredients in a blender.  Pulse a few times to break up the frozen ingredients and then blend until smooth.  Add milk a splash at a time to thin out the smoothie.  We like using the frozen yogurt and frozen berries in place of ice.  It gives you the same chilled effect without the annoying ice crystals that sometimes accompany smoothies.

A Banana Split Smoothie will be sure to brighten up your day (even when its NOT Sunny in Philadelphia)!
