Berry Delicious Smoothie

It's smoothie season! Last summer I got a little bored with my usual strawberry banana, and my boyfriend wasn't a fan of its temperature - but thanks to the collective suggestions of Katie and Cari, I've created an easier, tastier, more refreshing alternative (makes two):

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 6 oz frozen mixed berries (I used Dole's "Wildly Nutritious" blend of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries
  • 2 large spoonfulls nonfat vanilla yogurt
  • 16 oz orange juice

I'm thinking vodka might be a good addition ... I'll let you know if that's a very good, or very bad idea.

Ahh...I remember you making smoothies at 606 in the days when we needed smoothies and ice cream to cool us off due a serious lack of air conditioning.

I was thinking of you girls Saturday. I walked past 606 at 10 in the morning for the March of Dimes. It also happened to be Mifflin St. Block Party. There was a balcony full of rich girls in the brand new apartments across the street in matching Mifflin t-shirts they'd made for the occasion screaming and trying to get our attention. So sad when college girls are so desperate for attention they cat-call at families walking for a cause.... Aren't you glad you got out of 606 before that monstrosity was built???

Yes ... I bet those girls have air conditioning ... what kind of college experience is that?

I made these smoothies again this morning and was told there are too many seeds. Sigh. Search for the perfect smoothie continues.

Mmmm. Whatever happened to all those smoothies I used to make? This sounds delicious, esp. with the OJ. Let's see: I have frozen blueberries, yogurt, OJ, but no banana. I wonder how a potato would work?

Hm... get your fruits and veggies in one suspect smoothie!
