Fruit (and veggie) smoothies!

We love making fruit smoothies during our hot Texas summers. We don't really follow a recipe as such, but usually use the same ingredients. Basically we put a handful of strawberries, blue berries, black berries, a couple of bananas, a 1/3 cup of splenda, a handful of spinach (you don't taste it at all) one container of vanilla yogurt, 12 or so ice cubes, a dash of vanilla and a splash of vanilla soy milk! Dump it all in the blender and puree until smooth... instant refreshment!

Everyone in my family loves them and they're good for ya too! You should totally try it!

  1. My mom and I used to make these so often, but then we got out of the habit for some reason. We, of course, didn't use the same recipe, but they were YUMMY!

  2. You know, we went through a "juicing" phase where we juiced everything we could shove in that machine. Mostly carrots. We quit doing it for whatever reason, but I'm all about making these smoothies. I forget that our blender works for things other than homemade salsa.

    This is going to be on my to-do list as soon as one of us makes it to the grocery store for some fresh produce :)

  3. The spinach is a good idea! I like to use some frozen fruit instead of ice. Wish I had one right now...
