Smoothies=Healthy & Yummy

One of the cooks at our cafe makes my boss and I smoothies ever afternoon.  They are so tasty I thought I would try and recreate them.   My first attempt went horribly wrong, they turned out to me more like juice.  So I talked to our cook and he told me the secret = frozen fruit!

Fruits and Veggies picked up from the Farmer's Market by my apartment on Sunday.

Smoothie Recipe
{I don't measure anything. I just throw it in the blender.}
Frozen Fruit {I like strawberries, blue berries, banana and oranges, not all together at once}
about 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt {you can substitute sorbet if you like}
about 1/2 cup OJ {or other fruit juice}
1 heavy scoop of protein powder

Blend for 30 seconds and ta-da you have a smoothie. 

 {sometimes the fruit gets stuck to be aware, just get a spoon out and dislodge it from the spinner}

Serves 2 people and I am full for most of the morning.

This week we have had strawberry-banana and strawberry-blueberry.  Today we tried strawberry-banana-orange.  It was pretty good!
