Ever since I got an immersion blender, my smoothie consumption has sky-rocketed. I love having them for a mid-afternoon snack, or right after the gym. Usually, I just throw a combination of frozen fruits, yogurts, milks, juices, sweeteners, and healthy add-ins (like flaxseed meal or wheat germ) haphazardly into the container. It’s the one type of food I feel comfortable about not following a recipe (I’m so bold :P). Last week, I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try. The verdict? Lots of sweet berry flavor, and very refreshing after my sweat-session. It’s worth taking out the measuring cup for this one.
