Today, two of my girlfriends and I took a little field trip to the Dekalb Farmers' Market in Atlanta. Wow! It was incredible! I can't believe I haven't been there before. While we were there, I picked up some fresh blueberries, purple potatoes, organic milk, dill weed, bananas, regular potatoes and fresh mint.
This week for the FNCCC at I Blame My Mother, we're working on Chef Robert Irvine's recipes. I love his show Dinner Impossible. He has to create dinner on the fly for usually a large group of people. He comes up with some really great ideas.
I kept it simple this week since we have a ton of strawberries to use up. I chose to make his Berry Banana Smoothies. I didn't have any frozen yogurt so we just used our regular yogurt. But I used some of the frozen strawberries so that made up for the lack of ice and frozen yogurt. I also halved the recipe since I was just feeding the kids and I.
Berry Banana Smoothies
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup chopped frozen strawberries
1 ripe banana, broken into pieces
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup milk
3 teaspoons fresh mint
Combine all ingredients in a blender (or your fabulous Magic Bullet)
and blend until smooth.
These were really good.
I would never have thought about adding the mint
but it added a nice subtle flavor.
