Very Berry Smoothie

I'm jumping on the smoothie bandwagon today with this Very Berry Smoothie.  Yep, this is the very first time I have made one!  I don't know what I was waiting for!

I really didn't have a good reason not to make one - they are super easy and tastes so refreshing.  I've seen so many of these on the web lately and maybe on your blog! I just went to my local market, loaded up on my favorite berries and made my own creation.

Besides being easy, I think the beauty of making a smoothie it that you can personalize it with your favorite ingredients.  Maybe I'll be a bit more adventurous next time and throw in some spinach - Popeye would be proud!

The DIY Guy enjoyed it as well and actually preferred it instead of having a pop.

Be sure to tell me your favorite creation!  I have a feeling I'll be making more of these this summer!!
