A Berry Good Start to the Day

What’s one to do on a spring-like morning with a banana going bad and a pint of blueberries on their way out? Why, make a smoothie, of course!

After about 90 minutes of hot yoga and a bike ride home in this beautiful 60 degree weather, a smoothie was just what I needed to get this day off to the right start. Any fruit/vegetable combination can work just fine; this is just what I had in the fridge… And what I wanted to avoid throwing in the trash!

What you need:
A blender of some sort
Milk (I used organic vanilla soy milk – I think the vanilla makes it sweeter, so I would add some vanilla extract if you use regular milk)

The Smoothie Magic:
I put a large banana and about 1/2 pint of blueberries in the blender
Added in about 1/4 cup of organic vanilla soy milk
Topped it off with about 1 cup of ice
Pulsed it until everything was crushed and smoothed
And saved some for later!

Yesterday I was saying, “wake me up when the rain stops and when the pool opens.” Today I am doing cartwheels and skipping to work! … And no, there was no rum in that smoothie… But I might try that later 🙂

Peace, friends!


Mmmmm blueberry and banana smoothie

So good it's posing for me!

    Soy milk is great but i still prefer the old school cows milk since it contains more calcium. “””,’
