Smoothies are amazing....you can basically pack in any of the fruits (or even veggies - spinach, carrots, etc.) that you have at home, blend it up, and it comes out delicious! It's a great way to use over-ripened fruit as well, especially bananas as they add lots of extra sweetness. This morning's smoothie was pretty typical of what I usually will make, either for breakfast or a mid-day snack if I am at home. I also like to take them in my plastic tumbler for on-the-go breakfast or snack at work.
2 cups fresh or frozen berries (mine were a trio of frozen raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries that I buy in bulk from Costco)
1 red pear (random, but it was slightly overripe and ready to use!)
1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk (you can pick your favorite kind of milk here - soy, almond, coconut, hemp, etc...actually coconut would be amazing in a tropical smoothie! Will have to try some time =))
Place all ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth! If you blender keeps getting stuck (as it may if you have lots of frozen ingredients), try stirring the mixture a bit to let trapped air out, and also add a bit more milk.
Pour into a glass and enjoy!!
