The American Smoothie – Our Red, White and Blue

May is the time for fresh strawberries. Some are tart, some are sweet, some are just darn perfect. I like to combine my red with blue and white or blueberries and bananas! It’s a spring festival in my drink! And I like simple – sometimes simple is just better.

  • 1 banana: sliced in rounds
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 5 ice cubes

Recipe:
