Berry Smoothie


Smoothies, shakes, ice creams, cocktails, barbeques, melons, the smell of freshly cut grass, refilling the bird feeder so very often...smell of citronella burners in the evening air…the list is endless…it is going to get busy…days are getting longer and there is much more to do in the longer daylight…!!The craving for spring and summer got us tangoing with berries to create a smoothie. Nothing like picking up produce from a farmers market, but our berry thirst will have to be quenched from the berries bought from the local grocer…but not for too long!! :)

For the smoothie: serves 4



Assorted berries: (We used Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries and Red Raspberries) 1 cup (fresh or frozen)
Yogurt: 1 cup (we prefer organic vanilla yogurt)
Ice: 1/3 cup ( not required when using frozen berries)

Whizz the ingredients in the blender. Use water if smoothie is too thick….pour into individual glasses and Enjoy!! We have tried to use milk, but milk sometimes curdles when blended with berries…yogurt has no such attitude ;-)!! Get creative to garnish it with whipped cream, ice-cream, berry chunks, or mint leaves. For those of you not crazy about dairy, substitute it with orange juice. Was this quick or what? :)
