    The smoothie recipe is back!  The majority of California didn’t experience winter-like weather this year (again) and went straight to spring in February, and now we are having warm weather just like early summer!

    I constantly remind myself that I need to lose some weight now in order to enjoy delicious food in Japan this summer.  My annual trip home is coming up sooner than I think, and this healthy smoothie is exactly what I need.

    Delicious and refreshing spring fruit smoothie with banana, peach, strawberries, apple, and almond milk. Enjoy it with fresh or frozen fruits!

    Enjoy Smoothies instead of Snacking on Cookies

    The benefit of living in California is we get abundant fresh fruits all year around.  If I had been living here all my life (like my kids), I wouldn’t know this is not the norm.  For example, fruits are very expensive in Japan and a huge glass/cup of fresh smoothie?  Forget about it!  I wonder if the high cost of fruits is why smoothie shops and and smoothie itself is not so common in Japan.

    Anyhow, I love making smoothies for my family trying out different combinations and I drink smoothies between meals instead of snacking not-so-healthy foods.  Smoothies are delicious and you also get some fibers, nutrition, and refreshment at the same time.

    What’s your favorite fruit for Smoothies?

    If you enjoy making smoothies, what’s your favorite fruit and combination of fruits?  I use a banana as a natural sweetener for most of my smoothie.  I like the flavor of banana and it adds nice creamy texture to the smoothie.

    In case your favorite fruits are not in season, try frozen fruits for smoothies.  Costco usually carries a variety of fruits including organic options sometimes.  Oh, in case you are wondering, frozen fruits in Japan are also expensive… I will definitely miss my smoothies when I’m in Japan this summer.  Enjoy!
