Smoothie Madness!

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…
