Raspberry Smoothies

11 Jul

Smoothies taste dramatically better when you’ve picked the fruit yourself. Zoey found out yesterday. My favorite quote of the day from the Z: “Daddy, I didn’t even know I loved them.”

Thanks to the McAreaveys for letting us raid their raz patch on a hot summer day.

Here’s our smoothie recipe du jour. Roughly. Just blend it all up, serve, and smile. And don;t you dare follow these directions. Smoothies are for making it up as you go.

  • 2-3 cups of fresh picked raspberries
  • 2 peaches (not very good or ripe, but they did the trick)
  • 1 handful of fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons of local honey (also from the McAreavey farm)
  • 2 cups plain yogurt (haven’t quite made the jump to the Greek stuff. no matter how much Torin likes it, it’s still just sour cream to me)
  • a little bit of orange juice
  • 3 handfuls of ice cubes
  • 1 Tablespoon of freshly ground flax seed (don’t tell the kiddos!)

    And a Raspberry Smoothy makes a hot dog into a great meal!! Ours were great with ice cream as well – I didn’t know I loved them either.
