My Favorite Smoothie Recipe

Ok, so part of living happily ever after is having good food, drinks etc. right??  Right :)

I'm going to post my favorite all purpose smoothie recipe, it's pretty much fail safe.  I use the Magic Bullet (which I love, love, love).  I use just their regular cup for this.

I don't like my smoothies to be too cold -because then you can't drink it without a brain freeze.  So I don't use a ton of frozen stuff, but you can if you want!

Berry Banana Smoothie
1 Banana (make sure it's ripe or it will taste "planty")
1/2 c Frozen Berries
1/4 c coconut milk or 2 tbsp of coconut cream (this is my non-dairy favorite)
1 tbsp of honey (I use raw it works well for the allergies)
1 tsp gelatinized Maca Powder (gives it a little boost for the day - or any other kind of herb or energy booster would work)
Then I fill the rest of the Magic Bullet cup with filtered water.  Blend until everything is mixed in and enjoy!

PS if you are using rice milk or regular milk you might want to fill it with that instead of water at the end.   Coconut milk seems to be a bit more concentrated.

I've also substituted the banana for whole milk organic plain yogurt, and added a bit more sweetener.
