It's a Smoothie Party!

It's time for another Crazy Cooking Challenge! This month the recipe to make was a fruit smoothie. I don't know about you, but I love fruit smoothies! But really, what's not to love. They have fruit and they take no time to whip up. And, you can always gussy them up with frills to make them a special treat!

I made my fruit smoothie recipe from Erin at Big Fat Baker. I just love Erin's blog! It is full of  fantastic recipes like Candied Cranberries, Hawaiian Trifle,  and some beautiful Lemon Lime Macarons. That's just a few of her recipes. Erin is also the creator of the Holiday Recipe Club! The HRC is a really fun club, in which I also participate when I can!

So, let's treat ourselves, and enjoy a fruit smoothie!
Fruit Smoothie
1 sliced Banana
1 cup sliced Strawberries
1/3 cup Blueberries
1/3 cup chopped Mango
1 cup Skim Milk
1 cup Ice
Put the strawberries, blueberries and mango in the freezer for
1/2 hour before starting blender.
Layer the ingredients in order in your blender.
Blend for 1-2 minutes, or until completely smooth.

Serve immediately!

I did make a few changes to the recipe. To see the original
recipe, go to Fruit Smoothies.

Thanks for joining me today,
and thanks Erin, for such a great recipe!
