"I originally began blending up this simple beverage when our young girls shied away from berries," recalls Heidi Butts from Streetsboro, Ohio. "Now they're thrilled whenever I serve it. The thick fruity drink is a refreshing treat no matter what kind of berries you use."

We were not a big fan of the acidic orange juice with the berry/vanilla taste. Before we right it off, we will try with cranraspberry juice.
