I don’t have a juice machine, but Hubs wanted a smoothie this morning and these were exactly the fruits I was looking for. An added bonus? – no yogurt. I wasn’t crazy about the idea of pouring this over ice anyway. So I blended the fruits as called for, using twice as many (frozen) raspberries, mainly just to use them up, a handful of ice and some milk to make the blender go. Knowing Hubs would prefer this, I skipped the mint in the mix, using it just for garnish. This worked well and tasted good too – only problem was that it needed some sweetness, so I mixed in Splenda to taste. Hubs loved it. I don’t drink smoothies myself, I just make them, so the final review is his – pleasantly sweet, filling, great, balanced blend of flavors and, surprisingly, he didn’t miss the typical yogurt-based smoothie. (Please note that this recipe calls for a juice machine, not a blender! The blender will not move without added liquid!)
