Smoothie Adventures

This week my mission has been to make a good smoothie.  I should clarify that the ones I have been making are delicious... but they are chunky, seedy and most of the time too thick.

Last weekend a friend and I were discussing smoothies and how its impossible to make them the way that places that sell them do.  It's impossible to get rid of all the seeds & chunks... It's impossible to make that perfect consistency.... until today.




This morning I made the most perfect smoothie ever. I mean EVER.  Even my son commented that I should make them this way all the time because they are sooooooo good.



Best EVER Smoothie Recipe:
(And when I say EVER I mean by me)

1/2 banana
7-8 frozen peach slices
1/3 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 cup milk
1 individual yogurt, frozen (I used a pineapple mango greek)

Add all ingredients & blend until smooth.  Enjoy.  






This amount will make a large smoothie.  I shared with my boys. I would add 2-3 tbsp of ground flax seed every other day for breakfast.  It certainly changes the consistency of the smoothie, but its delicious all the same.

I froze the yogurt in the individual container, and then just ran a little hot water over it to pop it out.  I think this is the key to getting the perfect consistency.


Hope you enjoy!  I'll be making this again tomorrow morning :)
