Berry Smoothie

July 28, 2009

Every Sunday morning I get up at a ridiculously early hour for a Sunday and meet my running group for a long run. Since I am a big grump if I don’t eat, I have to get up even earlier to make sure I can eat and digest something beforehand. This smoothie is perfect! I have made it every Sunday morning for the last several months. It digests quickly so I can sleep in a bit longer and not feel like I have a bouncing bundle of food in my stomach while running. It is also a great way to use up any ripe bananas and frozen berries.

The proportions on this smoothie are pretty adjustable. Just add what you feel like until you get the consistency that you like and drink up!
