Summer Smoothie

I enjoy nothing more on a hot summer’s day than a cool fruit smoothie. My first experiences making smoothies were inspired by a Moroccan roommate for whom it was normal on a trip to the grocery store to buy at least 15 bananas at once. At first I thought he was absolutely crazy. How could someone possibly attempt to eat so much fruit without it going bad? Yet he would make delicious smoothies on a daily basis and showed me that they can be one of the most effective ways to get your recommended daily fruit servings in one tall glass of refreshing goodness.
Winter smoothies are great because most fruit that is available in the winter like apples and bananas are extremely tasty in smoothie-form. Nothing though compares to the taste and sensation of drinking a fruit smoothie on a hot sunny day in the summer.
This smoothie that I made today was an especially refreshing reward to down after a 45 minute jog in the humid heat of July. I made it with fresh strawberries and raspberries from Nova Scotia, an Ontarian peach, an organic banana from Ecuador and a combination of chocolate soy milk and regular milk. How refreshing!
