The cooking group in our ward did a whole night on berries. I was really excited to organize it because I wanted to learn about making jams and smoothies and see what other ideas women had.
It was delicious!!! I never eat before attending these cooking groups anymore because I always want to sample everything and just sampling leaves me stuffed--I think I'll go ahead and coin the term "The Costco Effect." Those of you who shop there will know exactly what I'm talking about.
I came home really inspired to jump on the homemade smoothie wagon. I am a HUGE fan of Jamba Juice, but it can definitely become an expensive habit...especially since my kids are addicted to the stuff from the womb.
Here's what I'm doing for mine (no exact measurements, 'cause with these ingredients, you can't get it wrong!):
Simply Orange orange juice (no from concentrate stuff 'cause I want to max out my vitamin intake)
Lime Sherbet (better for you than ice cream--no fat! and the flavor is great!)
Frozen Fruit mixture (mine has pineapple, mangos and strawberries--bought at Costco)
Frozen Raspberries (from my grandma's garden)
Honey (not much--a teaspoon)
Turn the blender on liquify and in a minute you have a delicious treat that my family absolutely loves!!!
