This was the perfect way to start our rainy Saturday morning. Also a great excuse to use our new immersion blender.
Smoothies and so easy too, as long as you have a few simple basics you can add just about any fruit and make it delicious.
Now these measurements are pretty rough, but that is the fun of smoothies nothing has to be exact you can adjust it to the way you like.
- 1 handful blueberries
- 1 handful raspberries
- 4-5 strawberries
- 4-5 pieces frozen mango
- 1 tangelo
- 1 banana
- 3 Tbs (heaping) plain yogurt (make sure there is no gelatin in it)
- 1-2 Tbs of maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it) if you don't have maple syrup you can also use honey
Before you start getting your fruit ready and blending, I would suggest taking the frozen mango pieces out of the freezer and letting them sit for a bit, You want them still frozen but just soft enough that they will blend in well.
First I threw all the berries in the cup and squeezed the juice out of the tangelo over the berries.
Next throw in the yogurt and banana and blend like crazy. You don't want any chunks.
Now throw in the mango chunks and add the maple syrup.
Finally blend until you can not blend anymore.
(the syrup is just meant to add a bit of sweetness, you don't want this to be a dominant flavor so make sure you taste as you go)
Enjoy! and as always I would love to hear what you think, so feel free to comment.
