Blackberry Banana Smoothies

"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."

    One word: YUM! This was a cinch to whip up using frozen berries and bananas, and was a perfect healthy and light "snack" for a warm summer evening! I keep bananas in the freezer for using in recipes, so I just cut them into chunks and tossed into the blender. Will definitely make again. VFE

    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.
