This is a quick easy delicious pretty yummy nice refreshing healthy quick easy as smoothie.

It is getting colder and colder here in New Zealand. We live in the sub-tropical North Island, and the norm for winter is rain, mud, and just enough cold to give you chill blains and make you huddle by the fire. Meaning, the discomfort of the cold but not the excitement of Snow! We got hail the other day. That’s a big excitement in the Snowless North.

For some reason we made smoothies today. A summer treat, just as it’s getting cold enough to make your toes ache! Well, a lot of the world is just getting their Summer, so I suppose this recipe will have some appreciation, if not from New Zealanders.

For 3 Banana Berry Smoothies I:

-put 2 bananas in the blender with about 2 cups of orange juice. (any fruit juice will do)

-I added about 1/2 cup of frozen (or use fresh) mixed berry’s.

And then I blended it all up and poured it into pretty glasses.

A perfect healthy snack.

Sugar (apart from the sugars in the fruit) free, dairy free, gluten free, everything free.

You could try all sorts of things, maybe using whatever you have in your fridge. I always find delicious smoothie recipes, but I NEVER have all the ingredients. This is my basic smoothie recipe, and I have made this with just bananas and orange juice in the past. It is a very delicious summer treat. You could add a spoon of natural yoghurt for extra deliciousness.

Oh, and they are very pretty, too.  Enjoy!
