Banana Berry Smoothie


Did everyone have fun watching the Superbowl last night?  I only made it till half-time, which I think is great considering the game started after midnight here.  I didn’t care too much about the outcome of the game this year, but I really had fun watching the commercials and the Destiny’s Child mini-reunion during the half-time show – I’ve had Bootylicious stuck in my head all day. Although, I’m still recovering from my lack of sleep, I would have to say this week is off to a much better start than the last one.

Last week was pretty rough for me.  It started out great.  We had a fondue night with friends at our place complete with cheese, bouillon and chocolate fondue, and I got to use my new fondue pot that I got on sale for 3 euros.  Everything tasted amazing and we had lots of fun, but the next morning I just didn’t feel well.  I spent the rest of the day – and week – sick to my stomach with absolutely no appetite.

The only thing I “ate” all week was this banana berry smoothie.  I drank at least 8 of them in 4 days.  It was cold and refreshing, and it was loaded with fruit.  I usually make smoothies as a dessert, but since I was trying to hydrate I wanted to incorporate lots of water instead of milk.  And I threw in a little orange juice for the vitamin C boost.  The vanilla extract is totally optional and really only made it into the last two batches of the week, but it gave it a really yummy flavor boost and made it taste more like a treat.
