In our house we call Smoothies “Soothies,” because the just make us feel great!!! This one is so yummy and Low-Fat that it can satisfy my Ben and Jerry’s cravings. My kids love this drink.
Did you know that Native Americans called the Blueberry the Star Berry for the 5 point blossom shape? I read that the anthocyaninin in blueberries is good for eyesight….so maybe after drinking this I’ll be able to find my reading glasses;) Speaking of glasses, these vintage 50’s gold leaf starburst glasses are part of my retro dishware collection. I love collecting. My son calls it hoarding;)!!!!
Tip: You could add Fax Seeds or Vanilla Protein Powder to this Smoothie
Budget Friendly Tip: When we have extra fresh berries that aren’t going to be used quickly, I portion them into freezer bags and save them for future smoothies.
