Yes, I made this smoothie. I didn’t really use a recipe; though, if you shuffle through the contents of my brain, you’ll probably realize I memorized a recipe out of Mad Hungry that I blogged about once here. The key to it all is: instead of using ice? You use frozen berries. And the rest sort of happens willy-nilly.
In this particular case, I added the frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries), orange juice which I juiced myself with Cara Cara oranges from the farmer’s market, a banana, and a few big spoonfuls of Greek yogurt.
Blend away, I did, and soon I had some smoothie magic:
It’s really that simple. And, I have to say, compared to the smoothies you can buy at Jamba Juice (which are overly sweet) or this smoothie place near my gym that insists on working in protein powders, this is the best of them all. The smoothie you make yourself tastes best because you know what goes in it.
What’s your favorite smoothie to make at home? I’m thinking I’ll try something with peanut butter next.
