I GOT A MAGIC BULLET BLENDER. This was my first creation: a mixed fruit smoothie that was so deliciously thick I had to eat it with a spoon. I made it as a post-workout snack after my run. The cold beverage was so refreshing on this hot day.
I use frozen fruit instead of adding ice to make it smoother and thicker and goat-milk yoghurt to save the cows! Banana makes a creamy base, blueberries are high in anti-oxidants, and strawberries are just fucking awesome.
** If you are using fresh strawberries, here is a trick I learned from my Magic Bullet recipe book: leave the green tops on the strawberries, that is where a lot of the nutrients are!
My recipe: Strawberry-Banana-Blueberry Smoothie
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 4 frozen strawberries
- 3 tbs frozen blueberries
- 3 tbs goat-milk yoghurt
- 1/2 cup orange juice (more for thinner, less for thicker)
What to do:
- Dump everything in a blender, blend until pureed and mixed, shaking and stirring when necessary.
