Fast, Easy Fruit Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies (next to maybe ice cream) are the signature summer treat. Cold, fruity and yummy! Yep I can def deal with that. The best part is though, that you can have a delicious fruit smoothie without disqualifying your summer body workout.

I am like a mad scientist in the kitchen, always experimenting – adding a little of this and a tad of that to all my recipes. Even if I call my self “following” a recipe, I always find a way to make it that much better with my additions. But you can bet your retirement plan that it’s gonna be gooooood.

And since berries are spring/summer fruits, they are in large supply and usually less expensive. I buy them in bulk then toss the excess into my freezer for later. Perfect for a nice, fruit smoothie.
