I was thrilled that I was able to pick up some raspberries and blackberries at my small town grocery store this morning. They are not something that we always have available when you live in the "sticks". They were screaming SMOOTHIE SMOOTHIE SMOOTHIE at me from the minute I laid eyes on them. Plus it is summer and it is probably against the law to NOT drink a smoothie everyday!!!
Here is my recipe for the perfect summer smoothie. It is quite simple and delicious!!! Never mind the calories!!! You could substitute yogurt for the ice cream to make it a little healthier.
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup milk
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend about 20 seconds. Pour into your favorite glass. Poke a raspberry through a straw. Drink up!!!
