Strawberry Sunrise Smoothie

8 oz. carton vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/4 cup apple juice
1 frozen banana, chopped

Place all ingredients in a blender, cover and blend until desired consistency.  Serves 2.

Note:  this is a good way to use up bananas that are about to get overripe.   Don't let them go too far.  While still tasty, cut into small chunks.  To prevent browning, you may dip them in lemon juice if you like.  Place on wax paper on a flat dish or pan and put in your freezer.  As soon as they are frozen, dump into a zipper freezer bag.  Use for this and other banana smoothies or slushies.
