Hi all. How is the weather where you are today? Well the weather here today had me craving a cold, refreshing smoothie since basically the moment I got up.
I like to keep things simple, and this smoothie is definitely simple. I don’t need or want spinach, yogurt, granola, or whatever it is in there.
Just 3 simple ingredients…
Milk, frozen bananas, and frozen blueberries. Together, they create MMMMMmmmm…
I guess I’m on a blueberry kick lately. But I don’t mind, because they’re chock full of antioxidants right?? The more the better!
Plus, they’re purty…
Whir it all up in a blender (a single-serve blender is best because clean-up is a breeze! This is the one I have and we love it! ). And pour it into your favorite cup…
An even better pick-me-up than coffee. =)
Milk makes such a difference in smoothies. I made this with water once because we were out of milk and…blech! Milk, its very important.
What’s your favorite milk to use for smoothies?
Mine, is this:
Not only is it delicious and vanilla flavored, but take a look at the expiration date!
Most of the almond milks I’ve purchased in the past have written, “Use within 7-10 days after opening.” It gives me peace and rest of mind to know I have until May 6, 2011 to finish this carton! Even though I’ll probably finish it before then, I like to not have a deadline for anything hehe.
That’s a win in my book!
-2/3 cup frozen blueberries
-1/2 cup frozen bananas
-1 cup milk (I used unsweetened Vanilla almond milk)
-1 tsp vanilla extract (optional — I didn’t use it here, but sometimes, I like to)
Combine all ingredients in a single-serve blender.
Whir away. Drink!
