seed me no more / smoothie (v, gf)

13901998936_eb503283c4_o

new blender means quicker smoothies. and a shopping trip to costco means huge boxes of strawberries and blackberries. both of these things makes me a very happy girl.

because the blackberries have a lot of seeds, when I blend this smoothie, it actually doesn’t get ground up and instead stays in the mixture. I don’t really mind it as much because it gives it an interesting texture. but if you think you’d mind the little crunch, then you are forewarned.

you will need:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 handful spinach (yes this is a “green” smoothie in disguise)
  • 1/2 cup of strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • a splash of water

the process:

  1. i like to put a bit of water in first to get my blender moving.
  2. then add the banana, chunk by chunk.
  3. blend until smooth.
  4. add the spinach; blend until smooth.
  5. add strawberries and backberries
  6. blend until smooth, or to the consistency you wish.

variations: by using frozen berries or bananas instead of fresh ones, you can thicken up the consistency.
