yummy smoothies!

so i've been trying to be better about 1) getting more fruit and 2) eating the despised breakfast and have come to the consensus that i like smoothies. no not your 1000 calorie smoothie king smoothies but rather some homemade goodness. here is the recipe i've been using for mine--i've noted the variations below too!

ice first in the blender--crushed would be ideal but we dont have crushed ice so i just put two handfuls in the bottom of the blender. then add the following...

1/2 cup plain (unsweetened/flavored) greek yogurt
1/2 cup milk or orange juice...oj gets you the tart taste, milk gets you smooth...if as you are blending its too thick, just add a tiny bit more of milk or oj
1 cup berries/fruit...i use a frozen costco bag of marionberries, blueberries, and raspberries (so pretty tart berries) but you can use fresh fruit too including bananas, pineapples, and more.

thats it/all that goes in there so blend it up really well, stirring as needed...and it makes a HUGE cup (largest tervis tumbler size) make sure to have a straw because its thick and yummy!

i've got mine ready to go in the car & heading to greenville to see the newly engaged Ali Poole!!!!
