SANDRA’S SILKY RASPBERRY MID-AFTERNOON SMOOTHIES

My favorite smoothie that has
just the right amount of tartness without
being too sweet ~ simply delicious...
Servings: 2
Prep: 10 Mins.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups frozen raspberries
1 cup cold water
12 ozs. (2, 6-oz. containers) berry yogurt 
--(I used 1 strawberry, and 1blueberry)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon wheat germ
1 tablespoon honey












METHOD

Place all ingredients in blender in order listed, cover, and pulse a couple of times.  Switch to puree setting, and blend for 3 minutes.  


To remove seeds, strain mixture through a sieve into a 4-cup glass measuring vessel, using a spoon to push puree mixture through sieve while retaining seeds.  Pour smoothie mixture into glasses and garnish with fresh raspberries, then serve. ~ Enjoy!


BTW: This is my friendly porcupine that came to visit when I was picking the fresh raspberries last evening to garnish these smoothies...he was gently snorting 1' away when I discovered him visiting, and he acted like he was happy to see me and hung around for about 15 minutes; he kind of likes his picture taken ;)

I love smoothies specially in the summer, yours looks yummy! I had a smoothie with half raspberry and blueberry and it tasted awesome. I'll try yours today. As for your last picture, I believe you are brave or maybe I'm a real chicken, if I've seen this animal around me, I would've ran like there's no tomorrow, forget about taking a picture ... Lol!

Haha! You made my day Muna, my Son agrees with you, as he said, "You better be more careful Mom!" I adore smoothies and generally prefer them in the afternoon for a quick summertime pick-me-up, enjoy my dear!
