The-Feel-Good-Anytime Smoothie

This is the smoothie I turn to during night shifts and this week while i've been sick. I think it's your days worth of fresh fruit in one glass. it's delicious and way cheaper than going to a smoothie store- plus it's healthier too.

Ingredients: pretty much any fruit you have on hand, but i strongly recommend:

4-5 frozen strawberries (or fresh but the frozen kind make it thicker and better texture)
1/2 c frozen blueberries (or fresh, see above)
1 peeled kiwi
1 banana
1/2 c orange juice
3/4 c whole milk plain yogurt

Put it all in a blender and puree. mmmmm yum!
i've also been considering peeling a pear and adding it into the mix.

Just a Picture

Okay, so this soup wasn't so great, but the picture is so i decided to post just the picture. It was a broccoli soup with Lemon-chive cream. the lemon chive cream was great and would work well as a dip for veggies or chips, but the fact is, the left over soup is still sitting in the fridge from a week ago, and even though soup sounds good when you are sick, this soup doesn't sound appealing enough for me to warm up a bowl for lunch. also, the picture verifies the fact that i have, indeed, still been cooking. I just haven't posted the recipes. I also made a great tortilla soup in the crock pot last week, which i am going to make for everyone over thanksgiving. so you'll get to try it for yourself.
