Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks June 22, 2012

What a week it has been in Ontario! We welcomed summer with a bang proving these next few months will be fun in the sun! When Mrs. CBB gets the blender out I know it’s party time at the CBB home! We made our first blender drink this week Vanilla Raspberry Banana Smoothie.

Devouring one of these drinks on a hot day psychologically makes me feel like I’m on vacation sun,sand and beach. As you may know I like my summertime beer however Mrs. CBB has dragged me into her blender drink circle from the first time she made me one. I’m a blender drink believer.. no I didn’t say belieber. So if you like blender drinks.. I have more where these came from! Ok.. on to my blog picks.


MR. CBB’s Vanilla Raspberry Banana Smoothie

  • 2 cups frozen raspberries ( if you use fresh add 2 cups of ice cubes)
  • 1 cup Liberte Greek Yogurt 0% fat
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1 frozen or fresh banana
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract 100% pure
  • Put it all in the blender and pulse until mixed!
  • Pour into any fancy glass, add a straw and some Mint for a splash of WOW! Enjoy!

P.S Add 1/4 cup of Coconut Rum for Pizzazz!!
