Blueberry Smoothie

Matt & I went berry picking on Saturday. I've never done it before, but I was so giddy excited about it.  1)I love berries. 2)There is a collection of berry farms a mere 30 minutes from our house. 3)Picking your own is just too fun, especially for a girl who didn't grow up on a farm.

So we drove, we picked raspberries and blueberries, and I tried not to eat everyone that fell from the bushes. We came home with about 5 pounds if berries and, compared to the other darn visitors, that was nothing. One family had 50 pounds of raspberries that they picked...crazy!

So here's a simple recipe to start your day. If the blender sound doesn't wake you up, surely the refreshing berry taste will. Enjoy!

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie
10 large ice cubes (2 handfuls)
6 oz plain or blueberry flavored yogurt
1/2 cup lemonade
2 large bananas
1/2 cup blueberries
2-3 cups spinach (optional)

Blend all ingredients together and serve immediately. Makes two 1 1/2-cup servings.
