We planted ours on Memorial Day and I can't wait to have fresh veggies right out my back door. After a long day of preparing the garden, a nice refreshing beverage is exactly what I needed.
I took one of my favorite drinks, Frothy Sunrise Punch, and used frozen berries instead of the ice cubes and I ended up with a super amazing smoothie. I am calling it a smoothie and not punch like the other version, because this version is more thick and creamy and it stays that way for hours and hours. I made mine around 2:30 in the afternoon and at 9:00 p.m. it was still just as thick.
This smoothie is so refreshing and a perfect thirst-quencher.
P.S. Anyone have any good tips on how to keep birds from eating everything out of the garden? They have been eating my strawberries and cucumber sprouts.
Berry Sunrise Smoothie
(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)
1 c. orange juice
1 c. pineapple juice
1 c. whole milk
1/4 c. powdered sugar, or more to taste
2 Tbl. meringue powder
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. frozen mixed berries
(I used strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries)
Combine all ingredients in a large blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and add more powdered sugar, if needed. This will depend on how sweet the frozen fruit is that you used. Pour into cups and serve. Makes 3-4 servings, depending on the size of your cups.
