1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from about 3 large oranges)
2 T. honey
1 – 2 t. fresh lemon or grapefruit juice
1 large ripe banana (frozen in advance, if you like – see below)
1/3 cup plain yogurt
Pinch of ground cinnamon
Optional: replace cinnamon with 1⁄4 – 1⁄2 t. finely grated fresh ginger

If freezing the banana, take off peel and place banana whole into a ziplock or other freezer bag/container. Freeze at least 4 hours, or overnight.

Place all ingredients into a blender jar and blend until smooth.

Makes about 2 cups.

Chef’s Note: To help get the honey out of the measuring spoon, spread a thin coating of cooking oil on the spoon before adding the honey.
