Apple Blueberry Fruit Smoothie

Happy Tuesday! I have a great recipe for you today that will be a fabulous twist on your morning breakfast routine, especially with this nice weather coming up. Speaking about nice weather, it was absolutely gorgeous yesterday and the rest of the week may prove to be the same way.

We all know how much I adore winter.

However, I guess this nice weather is okay.

But, just okay. Nothing more.

I am paying particular attention to the weather and its minute fluctuations because Nick is running a 10k this Saturday. It appears that there may be some periodic thunderstorms during his run on Saturday. And the supreme controllers of the run will not cancel because of rain or thunderstorms.

#PandaProblems!

Anyway, enough about the weather. Let’s move on to something that intrigues at this very moment: Shah’s of Sunset. Have any of you heard of this new show on BravoTV? I vowed that I would not watch this show when it came out. But I did.

You see, I have an unhealthy addiction to watching other people’s lives.
It’s an obsession. Nick thinks I should have been a psychologist or something because I am so intrigued by others and then I analyze them to the nth degree.

Some may call that being judgmental. However, that is a To-may-to versus To-mah-to argument in my book.

Now back to the show. It’s incredible. I just watched these group of pretentious spoiled brats sit down at a dinner table at an Americanized Kabob restaurant argue about religion – Persian , Muslim, and Jewish – and why they are not marriage material. It was like watching a mini debate amongst people who just do not get that there is a real conflict that exists between the Persians, Muslims and Israelis {and various other groups}.

This show is incredible. I have a hard time turning it off for a couple of reasons. First, watching people’s lives intrigues me. Second, it’s like a train wreck. It’s very hard to look away. Really, I have a hard time not supporting stupid shows. I need a break from my brain and these “reality” shows do the trick!

Okay, okay, okay. I can almost feel people rolling their eyes at my post today. Let’s move on.  Today I have a delicious Blueberry Apple Smoothie. I made it this weekend for Nick and I. It was a perfect addition to our Sunday morning brunch! I hope you love it as much as we did!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 {6 ounce} cup blueberry yogurt
  • ½ cup OceanSpray Light Cranberry & Concord Grape Juice
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple, cored and rough chop
  • 1.5 to 2 cups ice

Directions: 

  • Add the yogurt, ¼ cup of the juice, apple & blueberries to the blender. Mix until smooth
  • Add the ice and blend until the ice is completely crushed
  • If you like your smoothie’s thinner, add a bit more juice. I used the entire ½ cup juice because Nick likes thinner smoothie’s.
  • Remove to a glass, garnish with a couple of blueberries and enjoy every sip!

We really loved this smoothie. I was concerned about mixing the blueberries with an apple, but the flavor of the apple really made this drink special. Give it a try because you will NOT be disappointed!

Until Next Time,

Happy Creating
