My Icy Soul

I thought it was only fitting to finally post this great smoothie/icy/slushy/COLD snack idea that I forgot I had prepared waiting to be shared today of all days because Illinois reached a high of 102° F.  The worst part was the humidity that came along with it. The heat index was I believe 110°F....YUCK! I'm not a summer person AT ALL. I enjoy it of course but I'm more of a cooler, mid 70's type of gal. I despise heat....unless it's in food, but I won't ramble on about that xD

Anyways, this is super easy to make.  The best way I can describe it is, it's more rich than a shake, but less creamy than ice cream *scratches head*. I guess you'll just have to try it and see for yourself. You'll be glad you did! So refreshing! Tart from all the berries, sweetened with bananas, and an added creamy richness from the heavy cream...just a tad. Yum!

Mixed Berry Soft Serve

- 1 handful of mixed berries preferably the frozen kind, but fresh is fine
- 1 banana frozen
- 1/2 C fruit juice
- 1/4- 1/2 C cream
- 1/2 tsp Truvia or to taste

Put all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until you reach a smooth consistency. Poor in your serving cups or a large bowl and place in the freezer for about 1/2 an hour.

You can eat it straight away or thaw it out a little like I did so it's a little softer and easier to spoon in your mouth.

 You can't go wrong with smoothies in the summer time. They're refreshing, delicious, and very healthy!! This is perfect in the morning. You can add some protein powder making it a great post workout shake.

Berry Mango Banana Smoothie

- handful of mango
- 1 banana
- handful mixed berries
- 1/2 C Mango puree
- 1/4 C water (optional)
- 1/4 C ice
- Truvia to taste
Put ingredients in blender and pulse until desired consistency.

  3. There is nothing better than a cold beverage in hot summer. If there is no winter, it wouldn't make summer so special. Cheers!
