Homemade yogurt fruit smoothie

So I'm taking better care of myself, trying to eat better and working out now. I've already lost 5 pounds! You can follow my weight loss journey here!
I went to the grocery and purchased a ton of groceries yesterday, lots of fresh fruit and veggies! I had a bowl of cereal this morning but I was wanting a snack. I couldn't find a recipe to fit all the ingredients I have on hand so I made up my own!

Yogurt Fruit Smoothie
1 6 oz cup of your favorite flavored yogurt
1 cup low fat milk
1 heaping cup of your favorite frozen fruit (I used a peach, strawberry and banana mixture)

Put all this in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. I put this in my favorite party glass and have a wonderful fruity treat! This tastes delicious and is rich, thick, creamy and fruity! Its lower in calories and fat than soda's and my sweet tea my husband loves to make and keep on hand. It feels like I'm getting away with something and should feel guilty!

I found lots of frozen fruits in the freezer section of my grocer. I love fruit! It's just so expensive, but this way, I can keep my favorites on hand at all times for a multitude of treats!

I hope it's finally turning spring wherever you may be and you are getting out and enjoying the beautiful awakening of earth!

I've been a very bad blogger

I can't believe its been 2 months since I posted here :( I have been a very bad blogger. I guess I got burnt out on trying to do everything I wanted to do all at once.
I have a new gusto in me though and I have a new recipe for you! Ill post it after this one! I promise to post on a regular basis, it may not be several times a day, I start nursing classes on Monday and I now have a part time job so I'm going to be very very busy, but at least once a day I promise! :)
