Delicious Smoothie Recipe with a twist!

I've been into making smoothies lately and found this delicious recipe with a bit of a twist! Blender drinks provide a super-simple, healthy treat. Refreshing and delicious, smoothies make a great breakfast drink or an afternoon pick-me-up snack with healthful benefits. Here's a favorite blend, with a special twist to spice it up a bit:

In a blender, put 2 cups of milk, non-dairy milk, yogurt, fruit juice or water. Add the following: 1 banana, 1 apple (peeled), 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries and 1/4 cup frozen raspberries. (Frozen fruit retains its nutritional value, as it is usually frozen right after picking - plus it gives a refreshing coolness to your smoothie.) Now the "twist" – add a pinch of turmeric, a pinch of cinnamon and a heaping teaspoon of fresh chopped ginger. If you like it a little sweeter, add a 1/2 teaspoon of agave nectar. Blend up a single serving or enough for the whole family. Be creative, add what you love and feel free to experiment. Enjoy a delicious, nutritious meal in a glass!

Perfect for after yoga practice replenishment and nourishment! Thanks to www.yogamint.com for the recipe!

Blessings and Namaste
