Smoothies: How to make one

Here’s the requirements:

  1. Some fresh fruit – strawberries, blueberries, banana, pineapple and the like.
  2. Some frozen fruit like strawberries, black cherries, acai,
  3. Some yogurt, plain or vanilla – (Hint  – just add some vanilla extract to the smoothie mix.)
  4. Milk, be it cow, goat or the like.
  5. Ice and plenty of it.
  6. A sweetener like honey, agave and sugar. Your choice as to which and how much.
  7. A reliable blender – a stick blender will work in a pinch but a decent quality blender is much better.

And it’s exceedingly simple, just toss all the fruit and ice into the blender, a couple tablespoons of yogurt, and about 1/2 cup of the milk. And blend like your life depends on it, you want all the frozen stuff and the ice to break down so that it adds a nice body to the smoothie.

Like this evening we had smoothies – with fresh strawberries, pineapple, black cherry, and used Agave as the sweetener. Delicious – and the leftovers are getting frozen to incorporate into another smoothie.
