Bottoms Up!

Smoothies are my number one, most favorite thing to make/drink. You can't mess them up! and if you do somehow, you can just throw in a banana or a little more orange juice to fix it. They're not like cookies where you only know you messed them up after it's too late. The best part is they're totally healthy for you! Not to mention they're great for feeling refreshed and cool on your spring break.

These are all of the ingredients I used:
  • Green Goodness juice (Bolthouse Farms)
  • A couple of spoonfuls of Strawberry Banana yogurt (Yoplait)
  • The juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 banana
  • ~1/2 cup of frozen blueberries and rasberries (I just get the store brand)
Adjust these measurements to how you like them! And switch out the juices or use a bag of blended frozen fruit. After you make a couple of batches you'll learn what you like and which fruits you can switch out.

I put the juice in first so it blends better. This part especially is a taste balance;
 I don't want to taste the green juice so I put in enough for the health benefits but 
small enough that it won't be the main flavor.

Cut your bigger fruit so it'll blend faster.

Watch out for seeds!

And you're done!
