Easy Blueberry Smoothie!
I'm going to be honest and tell you that I hated making smoothies in the past because it required pulling out the blender and then of course, washing the apparatus. I suppose the average cook would be guilty of being lazy, but the average cook doesn't spend an average of 6 hours in the kitchen each day!
That said, I use a miraculous kitchen tool called a HAND BLENDER to make smoothies, and now the process takes just moments!
Check out this pretty purple delight and go make one now!
VERY BLUE BERRY & BANANA SMOOTHIE
1 cup Blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 Banana, fresh or frozen
4-6 oz. plain Soy Yogurt
1/2 cup Soy Milk
1/2 cup Blueberry Juice
(Optional: Use all of one liquid or the other)
Put all ingredients in a tall container. Using a hand blender, pulse until smooth and thoroughly combined. Use more or less liquid depending on how thick you like your smoothies.
Pour into two glasses and share with a special someone!
P.S. It will take approximately 20 seconds to clean and dry the blade attachment... sweet!
