{Recipe} The All-American Smoothie


I was craving Neapolitan ice cream.


I was hot.

It’s already in the 90’s here in Texas and the humidity is not to be taken lightly.  It’s already sweat-when-you-get-out-of-the-shower-not-to-mention-drying-your-hair-and-getting-dressed humid.  I was literally fanning myself with an envelope today. Indoors.  

The idea a cold, creamy beverage with a  red/white/blue color palate just sounded…nice.   There was no Neapolitan ice cream in sight and this was the closest and healthiest replacement I could whip up-it took less than 5 minutes.  Chocolate milk, fruit and ice. That’s it! This balanced drink was filling and it gave me a huge boost of protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber and fluid.  It. Hit. The. Spot.  

I like my smoothies ICY, so I add a bit more ice than what’s called for in the recipe. No rules or judgement here-just do what you think is best.



All American Smoothie

handful of blueberries, washed (fresh or frozen)

      Thanks Farrah! It’s so simple it’s almost ridiculous! So smooth and creamy–and chocolatey!
