I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately. Probably because of the heat. And, most likely, just because they’re awesome. 🙂
I absolutely love Alterra’s smoothies. Alterra is local coffee place in the Milwaukee area. I like just about anything from Alterra, but I’ll usually go for a smoothie over coffee any day of the week. I love their smoothies because they use real fruit and yogurt. They aren’t those sugary things that people try to pass as smoothies.
So, I did what any fan would do – when I ordered the smoothie, I watched how they made it. I’ve come up with something that’s pretty close to their Berry Booster. And, that’s what I had after my late-morning walk.
The Knock-Off Alterra Berry Booster Smoothie
3/4 cup – 1 cup frozen mixed berry blend
1 half of a frozen banana
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup cranberry-grape juice
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (optional)
Throw everything into a blender and turn it on until it’s smooth.
I like to put it in a big glass with a straw. Today, I enjoyed mine in a Smithwick’s glass while watching the Cooking Channel.
Not a bad afternoon…
