I have been in a breakfast slump as of late. It seems like all I ever eat is cereal, mostly because it's convenient. But I seriously needed a break. And thus, the strawberry smoothie was born. It's creamy, summery, cold, healthy and delicious. But, I do have a bone to pick with my kitchen...
I am unfortunate enough to own a crappy blender. Among all of my lovely kitchen gadgets that I enjoy immensely, the blender is the red-headed step-child of my appliances. It sits on the top shelf where I can barely reach it because I know that I will only reap disappointment when I use it. Seriously, I've only used it a handful of times in the 4 years that I've owned it. I need to fix this problem, because I really want to make some more strawberry smoothies.
Do you have any good smoothie recipes? What's your favorite fruit combo? Do you have a good blender? Because if you do, I would love to know what kind it is so I can finally rid myself of my terrible blenderness.

1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/3 cup milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar
Blend and enjoy! If you have a dumb blender like mine, do the strawberries in two batches.
Makes 1 smoothie.
