Smoothies are a delicious way to add healthful fruits to your diet. Frozen berries can be purchased at most supermarkets and natural food stores. For a thick smoothie that can be eaten with a spoon, use the minimum amount of soy milk necessary for blending; if you prefer a thinner smoothie, simply add a bit more.
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen banana chunks
1/2-1 cup fortified soy milk or other non-dairy milk
1 T apple juice concentrate
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Stop the blender occasionally to scrape down the sides of the container and push any unblended fruit into the blades with a rubber spatula.
Blueberry Smoothie is best served immediately. Leftovers may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours or frozen for up to 1 week. Blend the mixture again before serving.
