Berry Smoothie! (No dairy)

I've been trying lots of vegan, no fat recipes lately. Here's a very easy, delicious one. Make it thick and eat it like ice cream or add more almond or soy milk for a nutritious drink.

1 cup frozen berries (my favorite is a mixture of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries)

1 very ripe banana (Can be frozen. When you have overripe bananas and no time to use them, peel them, place in plastic bag, and freeze.)

Enough soy or almond milk to reach the consistency you prefer.

Place berries and banana in a powerful blender. Set on lower or "chop" level or use ice crusher feature. Slowly add milk -  a tablespoon at a time. Eventually set on higher level or "puree" setting. And blend thoroughly.

If you let the frozen berries sit in the blender for 10–15 minutes they will be easier to blend.

This is a great drink to make as you run out the door in the morning. Let the berries stand while you shower and they'll be ready to blend for a great treat for your commute.

If you allow the frozen berries sit from the blender for 10–15 mins they should be much less difficult to blend.
