Some may think that the recipe would be fairly obvious, but that would be unfair to Jo, who is having trouble getting her proportions right.

First let me say that smoothies always remind me of my second year of grad school, when Steph & I were the sole patrons of Sublime on Elliewood. Seriously, we kept that place in business for a whole year, until their lack of other customers willing to pay $5.75 for a superfood smoothie when you could get a veggie sandwich and a bag of chips for the same price at Take-It-Away next door finally forced them to pack it up.

(makes 2 8-oz smoothies.)

Substitute Sublime Superfood Smoothie

1 c. plain Greek yogurt (always stick to plain yogurt!)

3/4 c. almond milk

1/2 apple, 1/2 banana, and 1/4 c. blueberries (or other fruit, i just like these ones)

1 t. agave or a splash of fruit juice (optional depending on the sweetness of your fruit)

Optional: 1 T pollen (no more than this at first), 1 t. flax or hemp seed, and/or 1/4 c. granola for an extra crunch

Blend. Enjoy.

note: Jo, I originally wrote this for you somewhere about an hour outside of CDG where my morning travel smoothie consisted of 1/2 c plain yogurt topped with 1/2 c frozen orange juice (extra crunch). When on airplanes, it’s important to remember that the pressure always causes the yogurt to explode all over oneself, so it’s recommended to open it facing the seat in front of you.
