Super Smoothie

Berry Good

 

Smoothie is one of those things which gives a nice payoff for very little effort. A recipe is not needed, just throw in your favorite (blendable) fruits and a little water. Here is one of our favorites… (Since fresh summer fruits are scarce, I have used frozen.)

For 2 big glasses:

1 lg or 2 medium bananas

1/2c frozen blueberries (still frozen, I like the slushy chill that it gives)

1c frozen strawberries (thawed)

Isn't that a gorgeous color?

1c frozen mangoes (thawed) or 1/2c mango puree

2c water

Add the strawberries and mango to the blender first. Then the bananas and blueberries.        Blend a little, then add the water. Continue grinding until its a smooth consistency.                    Add more water if you like. You could also add protein powder or honey,  but  I think its sweet enough just as it is!  Yummy, filling, healthy and quick.   What more can you ask? 🙂

P.S.

If you want to get “really” healthy, toss in a handful of baby spinach leaves. Trust me, you won’t notice its there.
