The amount of excitement I feel every time I look at my new blender makes me feel really, really old. Using extra spending money on a kitchen appliance? Next thing you know, I’ll be asking for a vacuum cleaner for Christmas. (I do actually need a vacuum cleaner though…damnit.)
So you all can share in some of my new-blender joy, I wanted to post a delicious smoothie I made the other day. Now I’m a firm believer that you don’t need a recipe to make a fruit smoothie—literally 99.9% of combinations will taste good. Toss fruit in there, add some yogurt or a banana for texture, mix in some fruit juice if desired, and you’ve got yourself a winner. But if you need some inspiration, this blueberry lime smoothie is uh-mazing. And the flax seeds add a hint of nuttiness and texture I love (not to mention a bazillion health bonuses).
Here’s what you’ll be blending:
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 individual container of blueberry Greek yogurt (about ¾ cup)
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1 tbsp flax seeds
So simple, but it makes for the perfect summertime breakfast or snack.
