I've been making smoothies quite frequently this summer since we've been getting a CSA box each week from Zilke Vegetable Farm in Milan, MI. We're loving all the fresh, local produce. Between what we get at Zilkes and what we pick up at Coleman's Farm Market on Carpenter Rd. in Ypsilanti we've always got a great assortment of seasonal and delicious ingredients on hand.
Nathan especially likes "smoo-nees" and asks for them frequently. He loves watching the ingredients whirl around in the blender. Something about thing that spin really get this kid's attention!
I don't measure ingredient when I make smoothies. I just add stuff to my blender in the order my blender manual tells me to (different blenders work differently). It's really hard to mess up a smoothie. And if you don't like how it turns out you can usually ad a little more of whatever you think is missing and just blend again.
