super smoothies!

12 Aug

We finally broke down and bought a blender…welcome to yuppie-ville.  We frequent Booster Juice and their smoothies are wonderfully delicious but we realized that with fresh fruit markets just down the street from us, we could easily make them ourselves.

What’s great about them is that their packed full of vitamins, fiber, calcium and active bacteria cultures….no sugar added, maybe a small squeeze of honey in the occasional one. We bought a blender that was super easy to clean (or else we knew we wouldn’t make them) and we’ve gotten into the habit of making around 2 servings.  The blender works best this way and that way someone can be lazy and drink a pre-made one out of the fridge!

Really you can put anything you like in it, there’s really little error for mistake…if it’s too thick add more liquid!

Our first smoothie test was a blueberry grape one….so good, no need for sugar even!

What you need!
6 ice cubes
3/4 cup of milk
3/4 cup of frozen blueberries
1/2 cup of frozen grapes
1 banana
2 large spoonfuls of yogurt
1 large spoonful of oat bran

What to do!

Blend it!  If your blender has an ice crushing mode, use that first, than blend it until it’s the consistency that you like!

Another variation…a tropical smoothie!
1 avocado
5 big chunks of watermelon
half a large mango
1 large spoonful of oat bran
5 ice cubes
1/2 cup of milk
