We recently took a trip to a local blueberry farm, which was featured on, KOTV, Channel 6. Click on the link to see the story and the video.
We were able to pick several blueberries, along with the employees picking us several more blueberries. Which means, we left with A LOT of DELICIOUS blueberries!
I have been trying to think of recipes to include blueberries in and recently read about making smoothies with them. I had never really thought of using blueberries in a smoothie; however, I am not a huge fan of fruit so really most fruit does not sound good to me. Although, I thought this cold smoothie would be a brilliant idea for my teething toddler.
I blended 1/3 cup of fresh blueberries, 2/3 cup of rice milk, and a handful of ice cubes in the blender. If you would like a more creamy taste use nonfat vanilla yogurt, and you can also use regular milk with this. I prefer to use yogurt, but my son does not tolerate it well, so I avoided that. It turned out pretty well and more like a slushy without the yogurt. My son LOVED it. I gave him 1/2 a cup of the blueberry smoothie and as soon as he drank that he was begging for more. This will be a usual snack for us or breakfast item. I will be trying some some different fruits as well.
What kind of smoothies do you like? Any good fruit combination?
