Fruit Bomb Smoothie #backtoschooltreats

Smoothies have taken over the world!  Did you know that there are more than 330 million recipes for smoothies on Google?  That's because they are truly an endless source of food creativity.  I will share this fun recipe we make and share how we change it up on a regular basis.  I hope you send your favorites to me at terri@terristeffes.com.

Here is what Wikipedia says about smoothies:  A smoothie is a drink made from pureed raw fruit and/or vegetables, typically using a blender. A smoothie often has a liquid base such as water, fruit juice, plant milk, and sometimes dairy products, such as milk, yogurt, ice cream, or cottage cheese.  See why there are 330 million recipes??  Any combination of those ingredients plus the endless types of fruit and veggies and you have a smoothie!  Not to forget the added sweeteners, protein powders, nutritional supplements and even vinegar!

To make this Fruit Bomb Smoothie, you need 1 c frozen mixed berries, 1/2 c Greek vanilla yogurt, 1/2 c almond milk, 1/2 banana, and 1/4 c frozen avocado.  Yes, frozen avocado.  I find mine at Aldi and it is very reasonably priced, and no waste!  Throw it all in the blender, starting with the liquid.  Blend until smooth.  Add in 2 T chia seeds and either stir or blend.  Makes enough for two smoothies.  I often add more almond milk to get the consistency that I like.  

A few more tidbits:  the term smoothie was coined in the 1980s but smoothies were being made as early as the 1930s, according to some cookbooks from the era.  To be a veggie smoothie you should have at least 50% vegetables and use the entire vegetable, including skins.  Smoothies are served in nearly all cultures around the world!

Check out these amazing treats, too!  You will be so glad you did!

  2. It is valid, a wide range of natural products are accessible in evolved nations, even the most fascinating, and those organic prodShrooms
    ucts that are not accessible there do essentially not exist anyplace else, however tropical and subtropical organic products, for example, those of Burma may be accessible in far off nations yet don't develop there.
