Berry Smoothie! (No dairy)
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.
