Smoothie Trick

Not that this is an earth shaking, ground breaking, super fantastic idea or anything, but kinda it is, so I thought I would share! Lucky you!!!

Lately, I have been making a batch of smoothie every night of the week. This means that I have been using either fresh or frozen fruit, ice and juice to make a wonderful treat for my family. But, the smoothies are not the treat, as much as my genius idea to make a little extra and freeze it in a coffee mug, for later. I just pulled out a magical mug full of chocolate covered strawberry smoothie, from earlier this week and am enjoying it as I type! Pretty good trick, huh?

Oh, you would like a few of my simple recipes you say...I guess I could be persuaded!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie

1/2 blender of chocolate Silk
1 bag frozen strawberries

I told you it was simple! If you want, you can start with just a little liquid in the bottom of the blender, so the strawberries don't make too much of a splash and then you add the rest, as needed.

Last night we had

Peachy Lemon Smoothie

1 banana
1/2 blender of apple juice
1 lemon
1 bag frozen peaches
1 tray of ice

My Meeeeema's favorite smoothie is anything with blueberries!

1/2 bag frozen blueberries
1 lemon
2 bananas
2 trays of ice
1/2 blender of juice (we use mostly apple)

As you already know, you can use fresh, or frozen fruit. You just adjust the amount of ice you use, to get the right consistency. If you would rather have a thinner smoothie, add more juice, or less ice. It is all in what you are interested in eating! Who says you can't have your fruit and eat it too!?
