Our broken blender was replaced today, hurrah! Smoothies are back! Smoothies are my favorite breakfast food. I've never been much for cereal and I only eat eggs occasionally, but my body says "yum!" to smoothie nearly every time. Many thanks to ElvenTiger and Quester for the gift of a new blender! It was my Mother's Day present from them, and today was the day I turned in the "100% off coupon" ElvenTiger made me.
In honor of the occasion, here's a family favorite combination:
1 peach, pit removed
1 clementine, peel removed
1 apple, quartered
1 cup or so of cold water
1 or 2 frozen bananas
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
Start with your fresh fruit and water. Blend. Then gradually add the frozen fruit until the smoothie is at desired thickness. Drink! Enjoy!
