Fruit Smoothie

As I mentioned in a post about a week ago, I was frustrated with my health and feeling so fatigued.  I want to thank those of you who commented or e-mailed me to let me know you were thinking of me or praying for me.  Your kind words were much appreciated!

Thankfully, I am back on track and feeling much better as of this week.  I am incorporating some rest time into each of my days whenever possible, even if it is just 20 minutes, so I can re-focus on the tasks for the day and to give my mind and body some down time.  So far, it is working out well.

I drank a few smoothies during the time I was feeling so fatigued and wanted to share the recipe with you.  I love smoothies because you can use almost any fruit or vegetable, they're packed with vitamins and nutrients, and taste delicious.

Fruit Smoothie Recipe

I raided the refrigerator and found cherries, blueberries, yogurt, and milk.  I tossed about 1 cup of blueberries, 2/3 cup cherries, two individual size containers of yogurt, and enough milk to make it smooth into a blender.  Just blend the ingredients until they're blended well. 

It tasted great and it's pretty too!

I've also used frozen yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, and milk together with good results.  You can add flaxseed, protein powder, or vegetables to your smoothie too.  Just raid the refrigerator and pantry and see what's in there!

All my best to you!

I LOVE smoothies!
You do the same thing I do--add whatever's on hand! Those are the best!
I have yet to add flax seed to a smoothie, although I have it in the pantry.
Must do that :)
Blessings to you as you make your home!

Oh that looks great! So refreshing and whenever I drink one I get re-energized! I've used what's on hand too which makes it a nice surprise. but you have to try the Silk Almond in place of milk...OOOoo so Yum! Good, good, good for ya too! It's a chocolate soy milk and you wouldn't think blueberries would go very well with it...but boy what a nice refreshing drink it makes.
Take care, I'll pop back in later,
