I’ve been on a smoothie-making craze lately. Every fruit I lay eyes on in the fridge, my mind converts to a smoothie. And then next thing you know, the kitchen table’s a mess, I’ve got chopping blocks, knives, dirty spoons, and banana peels and whatnot all over the place. But a lot of the good recipes I come across on the internet involve some sort of berry, and I usually don’t stock berries in my fridge.
So last weekend, I made a mental note to pick up the cheapest berries I could find at the supermarket. I picked up a box of blueberries at Stop & Shop, and today, I proceeded to mince it into itty bitty pieces for my smoothie.
I used this recipe, which you can find here; but with some variations. Along with not stocking berries in my house, we also never have milk in the house. BUT, I did have condensed milk, which I actually prefer in my smoothies because it’s sweeter, thicker, creamier, and milkier. I also left out the vanilla yogurt. Most of the time, I also don’t stock up on yogurt in my house (are you starting to see a pattern here? =D ). This was the one time that there was yogurt in my house, and I was so excited when I read the recipe and realized I actually had the yogurt for once. I ran downstairs, popped open the yogurt, and – oh dear. The yogurt did not smell right. Expiration date? The 9th. Of May. But no worries, blueberries, bananas, and condensed milk still sounded pretty darn delicious. Oh and I left out the cinnamon too (ironically, I actually did have cinnamon in the house!).
This is my oh so delicious end result:
Add in some extra ice cubes and voila. Blueberry banana-y goodness.
Happy middle of the week everyone!
