Smoothie… smoothie… smoothie… yum! I consider my morning smoothie as my Fountain of Youth. It contains the foods that you need to glow and start your day. I drink one of these just about every day. I have my girls drink it before school. It instantly boosts their nutrition and I instantly feel like I did them something great for them.
We’ll call this drink the Berry Blast! Okay, Im not in love with this name, but I’ll go with it. There is one necessary ingredient that may take a few days to have ready. So… if you have bananas…. you’re almost ready to make the smoothie.
You’ll want the brown ones. These will make your smoothie sweet without adding any sweetener. So, when your bananas are ready…. peel them, break them in half, and then stick them in glass container or ziplock bag and freeze them for a day. Then you’ll be ready the next morning.
I prefer to add other liquids like oj or soy milk. Maybe that isn’t as healthy. However, I find it yummy.
Other fun mix ins include frozen cherries or the triple berry frozen berry mix. I cut up some mangos last time, can you say delicious?
I will also throw in raw oatmeal. I prefer to blend the his seeds early on – less grit.
Don’t limit yourself on mix-ins for your smoothie. I love to throw in PB as well. Have fun with it and throw out the recipe. It is an art not a science

I agree about not limiting yourself. This is just my favorite morning smoothie. I also make other smoothies with cacao, oats, nut butters, etc. The nice thing about smoothies is that they are so limitless as far as combinations!
Thanks for your comment!

Slightly off topic, but we made Peach Ice Cream with frozen peaches in the Vitamix. As Rachel Ray says, yum- o!
