Liquid Happiness

Blueberry Banana Blast:

1 frozen banana
1/2 c (or so) frozen blueberries
Milk, enough to swoosh things around without it being too thick
Agave Nectar, to taste (est. 1-2 tablespoons)

For those of you, like me, who hadn't heard of agave nectar let me please be the first to introduce you. It is a wonderful natural sweetener that can be found in most baking aisles next to the molasses and caro syrup. It looks like honey but, fortunately lacks any distinct flavor -besides sweetness! It's pretty fantastic. My friend Jen likes to top her pancakes with it, I must try that.

Back to the Blueberry Banana Blast. Mix those fellas together and enjoy approximately two pint glasses full of liquid happiness. It's a great snack to tie you over between breakfast and lunch. Wilder was a big, big fan.

Note: To enhance your smoothie experience and keep you satisfied, add some soft silken tofu to the mix. You won't taste it (well, maybe a very light nutty flavor, which I think is always welcome) and it will add a wonderful thickness to your beverage. Milk allergies? Use soymilk and it will be just as delicious (or even better; I love the taste, especially the unflavored kind.)

Enjoy!

I've been going smoothie crazy lately. Healthy cool treat! I've found that soy milk works the best (and tastes the best!).
