It’s almost summer time and all those yummy berries are coming in season! A few weeks ago, my family went to pick some strawberries. It was the first time for the littlest member of our family and my husband and they both seemed to love it! To top it off, we had some homemade strawberry ice cream to cool us down after working hard to get all those strawberries. I mean what better strawberry picking experience can you get? I love berries. But today, I’m not thinking of strawberries, I’m thinking of blueberries. I love blueberries. Definitely one of my favorite fruits (other than peaches, which I LOVE). I love yogurt… and my blender. And together we get a beautiful smoothie. They are a perfect way to get lots of nutrients and you can take them with you wherever you go.
Today I made a banana blueberry smoothie with spinach. Yes, spinach. If you’ve never tried a smoothie with spinach you ought to give it a try. First, you can’t really taste it and, second, it adds so many extra vitamins! I added a banana, some blueberries, greek yogurt, milk and spinach to my blender and gave gave it a go. Just a couple minutes later, I got myself a healthy smoothie. I eat a lot for breakfast. A lot. What would normally be okay for some is just a snack for me. So along with this smoothie, I had this with some scrambled eggs and it was lovely.
