You can’t go wrong with berries…

Good morning, world! I just drank a ton of a Mixed-Berry Banana smoothie, which was super easy to make as well as surprisingly sweet, considering the lack of any added sweeteners.  The recipe is so simple, just fruit and water:

-3 medium size bananas*

-2 cups frozen mixed berries

-1 cup water

Blend all ingredients until desired consistency is reached and serve!

*The key point here is to use ripe bananas, meaning they should be covered in brown spots, not yellow.  Not only do under-ripe bananas taste far less sweet, the texture is less creamy and they are hard to digest, as our bodies are designed for ripe fruit with fully developed sugars.

I made two batches of this smoothie and drank both up fairly quickly.  Smoothies seem like such a treat, but it feels so good to drink them knowing how good they are for me, too! Yum!

Tonight for dinner I want to try a raw pasta, using homemade zucchini noodles and marinara sauce.  I found a recipe that I’m going to try.  Check out the video on youtube!
