I never cease to be amazed at the variations you can make for smoothies – even with the same ingredients! A few fresh healthy ingredients full of nutrients and flavor, a tall glass, a straw … simplicity itself! Oh and, of course, the blender. This can be a simple wand blender or a top of the range high-speed one.

In this recipe Wendy at AroundMyFamilyTable combines the perennial favorite of strawberries and banana, but any berries will do.

I love having a bunch of quick recipe ideas in my recipe box for quick snacks, drop in company, or just cuz I’m in the mood to make something tasty!

I think y’all will love this layered … smoothie for supper.
