Healthy Morning Smoothie Snack

I woke up this morning with a pretty intense hankering for something sweet and healthy.  After the week of socializing and eating out, I just wanted to sit down and relax with something simple yet satisfying.  I was pacing in the kitchen, snacking on some dried lychees from my buddies @Megafruit... when I decided to look through my fridge and freezer, and what did I see?  All the perfect ingredients to whip up a quick smoothie! 

Very Berry Smoothie:

This is so easy, and so delicious... I tend to just add whatever fruits I have in my fridge or freezer at the particular time.  CAN'T wait for berry season so I can start using fresh ones again!
  • Take out your blender
  • Pour 1/4 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of OJ into the bottom of the blender
  • Toss in about 3 frozen strawberries and 1/3 cup of frozen blueberries
  • Start the blender on about a 4 "speed" setting for about 30 seconds
  • Add more liquid (your choice of milk or OJ) if the motor on the blender gets stopped up.  
  • Watch closely as the smoothie liquifies, and stop the blender once it reaches your desired consistency. 
  • I love mine rich and thick, so I sometimes even throw a scoop of Vanilla bean ice cream in on a hot summer day.  (If you choose to do this, put the scoop in about 10 seconds before you finish blending)
  • Once you smoothie's looking how you like it, pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
This will be the perfect accompaniment for my afternoon of work!  I'm pretty excited that I have some architectural design work going on the side now... so it'll be a smoothie and designy afternoon.
