Every Berry in the Blender Fruit Smoothie
This is a different take on my usual morning smoothie (a green smoothie the recipe which will be provided in a later post.) I like to use what's fresh, in season and available organically to make a morning smoothie. I also choose what smoothie I'm making based on what's about to be too ripe. Today, that happened to be a peach so this smoothie is blueberry, strawberry and peach mixed with the basics. The basics include a handful of greens so you're actually sneaking a small salad in there and you'll never even know it once you give it a taste. It's creamy, refreshing and a great way to start the day off right. I enjoyed this while making my granola recipe so I wouldn't be starving when it came out of the oven.
Ingredients1 organic fuji apple
1 organic peach
Several organic strawberries
1/2 cup organic blueberries
A large handful of organic spring mix, mixed greens
The juice of one organic lemon
1/2 cup of 2% greek yogurt
A couple of Tbsp of water
DirectionsWash all your ingredients using a fruit and veggie wash (except, of course, the banana and the yogurt ;) .)
Cut the apple in half and place in the blender.
Do the same with the peach. If you cut a peach along its seam it makes it easier to remove the pit, much like an avocado (with a little more juice so you may want to do this while holding it over the blender.)
Start low and turn the blender up to high. Let blend for 15-20 seconds and you're set. (If you're using a Vitamix you'll see what I mean)
Makes two servings.
