Sounds like a good idea to Grenville and I too. So smoothies have become a breakfast staple here. This one was Grenville’s birthday treat last week.What would you think about a shake to start the day?
Blending fruit together is way more fun than fixing a fruit cup. You just toss everything together and blend away – easy! Our Braun® stick blender was feeling neglected with the recent purchase of a new Kitchen Aid® immersion blender, so it was the “tool” of choice.
We always have several types of fresh fruit at the F&P.
This one was made with: 1 C orange juice,
1 banana, ½ C canned pineapple, ¼ to ½ C vanilla yogurt.
I’ve been tastily experimenting with smoothie ingredients and found out that amounts can vary – according to what’s in the house, and personal taste too. And, if the fruit is sweet enough, there’s no need to add sugar. The canned pineapple added enough natural sweetness to this blend. Vanilla flavoring is a nice additive too.
My smoothie ingredients have included: bananas, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, kiwi, yogurt (vanilla usually) and either orange juice or milk – usually 1 C.
