Smoothie Operator

My mom has a bad habit of dumping lots of fruit on me whenever she comes to A2 - much more than I could ever eat before it goes bad. This past week was especially extreme - mangoes, pears, strawberries, blueberries, bananas... much too much. But I quickly figured out a low-intensity solution - smoothies!

I love yogurt, and I got a good four days of experimentation out of the fruit baskets. Interestingly, I don't think I like bananas in smoothies - it starts to make everything feel a little heavy, and I liked the lightness of just a yogurt base.

The last day was probably the apotheosis of my smoothie career - strawberries, blackberries, mango, pear, and yogurt. Erika, take note.


  1. What proportions of each fruit did you use? I would worry about the black berries overpowering the subtle pear flavor.

  2. I was eyeballing everything - and you're right that some flavors were probably overwhelmed...
