Dawn's Raspberry Smoothie

I interviewed our family's premier smoothie maker, my 10 year old daughter, to learn her secrets to a great smoothie. Here is her favorite smoothie recipe to make, in her own words:

1 can of coconut milk
1/2 can of water
3 bananas
3 handfuls of frozen berries
honey, to taste

Put the can of coconut milk, & bananas in the blender. Blend. Then put the frozen berries in with the water on top. Then put the honey in, and you blend it up. Add more water if needed. Then you have a good smoothie.

Money saving hint: to find raw honey at the best prices, call around your area to find a beekeeper. We get raw honey this way, at a far lower cost than the processed (heated) honey at the grocery store.

Recipes are Coming...

We are pretty serious smoothie drinkers around here. We like to invent new, healthy recipes quite often. Some of us have food allergies, so we have to be creative. What types of recipes are you most interested in? Please let me know in the comment section...
