smoothies

For my birthday this year I got one of these- a blendtec.
Oh how I love it!
These are the same blenders Orange Julius & all the big name smoothy chains use. The blendtec has a way of really whipping them up- to just the right texture. We make soomthies on a regular basis now.
I buy berries (all kinds), Kern's fruit nectars, & light yogurt at Costco in the big packs-
then mess around with different flavors. This one is strawberry mango!
Frozen strawberries
One can of Mango nectar
2 strawberry yogurts
-Blend-
It's good & good for you!!
Warning: to get the true smoothy experience these need to be sucked down with a straw... seriously folks- it's all about the straw.

My kids can't get enough smoothies, they're wanting them every day.

We'll have to try your recipe.

Thanks!

Yum! These look really good. I only think about making smoothies when it's hot. But since our slurpee's are going away here I might have to convert to smoothies... much healthier!

You would be so proud, your brother has switched from his too many a day soda habit to the Kerns juice now... he loves it and takes it to work instead of Pepsi or Mt Dew. We knew he could do it!

I will have to make him this smoothie recipe now!!!
