Smoothies are a staple around here. We're pretty much purists in the smoothie world...just fruit, ice, and a little lemon juice does the trick for us. None of us are too picky what our smoothies look like most of the time. But, sometimes, it's just plain fun to play with your food. ;-)
In that spirit, dd19 made this pretty smoothie yesterday. The bottom layer is frozen cherries, second layer - bananas and lemon juice, and top layer- blueberries. Yum! She froze each layer a little bit more by placing the glass in the freezer for a while after adding each type of fruit. Makes a cute little dessert cup, don't ya think? I'm thinking we'll keep this in mind next time we have company as a special little dessert drink.
Anyway, just wanted to encourage you all to play with your food. =) Healthy eating need never be boring!
