One of my father’s favorite anytime indulgences is making a smoothie with a ripe banana, some of our homemade plum jam, plain yogurt, and honey. In the late fall, he’ll swap out the jam for ripe kiwi-fruit.

Personally, I’m a blueberry and strawberry fan. Actually, I can’t remember ever meeting a smoothie I didn’t like (have great plans for the papaya ripening on the counter).

Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? If so, please let us know in the comments.

In the meantime, what follows is a super simple recipe for either a strawberry or blueberry smoothie.

    We use a lot of the above ingredients but, the one thing I have not seen mentioned that we do about every other day is make a kefir smoothie. We love it! My little ones have always loved it too and it is so good for us!

    I have blueberries, rasberries, strawberries, and banana with some OJ and peach yogurt

    For an added nutritional kick, I’ll often put a tablespoon or two of wheat germ in my smoothies. Ohh, and I’m a big peach smoothie fan, but banana and peanut butter works for me too. :)

    I love smoothies! But mushy banana gets an instant ick factor from me, so my smoothies are always banana-free. I make them using plain yoghurt, a bit of honey, a dash of orange juice, lemon sorbet (or any other flavour that catches my fancy if lemon isn’t available), frozen peaches and frozen strawberries or raspberries. Proportions are whatever looks good. :)

    Peaches, pineapple, bananas, berries- gosh, I love them all! I survived on them during the scorching blaze of July.

    It’s nice to add a dash of vanilla or orange extract. Maybe a dash of cinnimon too.
