Return of the Smoothie

The unseasonal cold is leaving! Bring on the flip-flops! Slap on the sunscreen! This blogger is heading outside with no fear of rain for the first time in a week.

Temperatures here in Montana are predicted to be in the 90's at the end of the week. You know what that means . . . green smoothies have returned to my kitchen! I made this particular smoothie over the frrreeeezing weekend, perhaps in an effort to defy the chill. Maybe it worked, because we're due for some sweating in the near future! Not sure if this smoothie is sun-inducing? Try it for yourself and see . . .

Bring-On-the-Sun Green Smoothie

1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup diced pineapple and juice
1/2 cup cantaloupe
1 BIG handful of fresh spinach
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/2 packet of Splenda
1 big pinch xantham gum (optional -- I added it for thickness)
