Fruit Smoothie

Fruit SmoothieLately I have been thinking about my daily intake of food and drink. Shockingly enough, I am doing ok on my portions of meat, and vegetables, however I have noticed that I was passing up fruit. Sure, I have use fruit such as mango in my corn and mango salsa, however that is not as nearly enough as I would like.  So that got me thinking… what could I do to improve my intake of fruit? Simple. Have a fruit smoothie a day.

The thing I really like about the smoothie is that you can put pretty much whatever fruit you want in it. My visit to the store this week, led me to the fact that blueberries were on sale, as well as strawberries. We grow fresh raspberries in the back so there is no problem there. Now, I simply add in the rest. Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup of cleaned strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of raspberries
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of plain non-fat yogurt
  • pinch of sugar
  • 5 ice cubes

Add these ingredients to a blender and if you have an option for smoothie, use it, otherwise, blend until, well you know, smooth. After drinking one of these, you will feel full of energy and ready to continue the day. Question to you is, how do you make your smoothie?

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
