Banana Berry Smoothie

What's better than a cold fresh fruit smoothie on a really hot day...or even on an unseasonably warm fall day? I have been playing with different variations and right now this is my favorite. It's so easy - there's really no excuse not to make it. Sometimes I put it right into a glass and sometimes I put it in a bowl and stick it in the freezer for a bit and pretend it's ice cream. Either way, it's delightful and satisfying to the point that I don't even care that I'm not eating dairy or chocolate. Yeah, I said it. If you are craving chocolate, try this banana chocolate ice cream.

Banana Berry Smoothie
How I Did It:

1 frozen banana
7 frozen strawberries
1/8 cup frozen blueberries
2 tbsp almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp ground flax seeds (optional)

1.  Break up frozen banana into a few chunk and grind up in the food processor. Add in strawberries and blueberries.

2.  Once the fruit is all finely chopped up, add in milk of choice, vanilla, and flax seeds and process until well combined and smooth.

3. Enjoy!
