The garden is starting to produce LOTS of goodies right now: kale, gooseberries, black raspberries, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, onions, and more!
After spending time picking a bagful of berries and veggies this afternoon, my youngest announced he wanted to make a smoothie out of our haul. So, once the picked produce was analyzed, we determined that a berry cucumber yogurt smoothie was in order.
It sounds a little bizarre, I know. Cucumber and yogurt? With berries???
Well, cucumber and yogurt go together well in tzatziki, and who doesn’t love that?! Mmm…
And, obviously black raspberries, gooseberries, and strawberries are a no-brainer.
So, into the blender went black raspberries, gooseberries, cucumber, frozen strawberries (from earlier this month), strawberry banana yogurt, and a splash of whole milk.
I’m not lying when I say this combo was as yummy to slurp as it was beautiful to gaze upon.
Sweet, but naturally so – with a teeny kick from the yogurt.
A little tart, but not enough to make you pucker.
Yum! If you don't have any frozen strawberries, use fresh, and then add a handful of ice cubes. Easy fix!
