Papa’s Top Secret Blueberry Smoothie

As we wrap up this year’s week of Blueberry Bliss, I thought I end things with a special recipe from the grower of all of these beautiful berries – my Papa. He and my uncle put in countless hours tending to these berries, making sure they are the very best. Today he’s been sweet enough to share his wonderful blueberry smoothie recipe, what a treat!

Papa and Mema love to make smoothies and over the years they have tweaked the ingredients to get it just right – mighty delicious if you ask me! A big thanks to Griffis Farms and Bonnie Blueberries for letting us take lots of yummy berries home to enjoy and share with others. I’m already counting down the days until next season!

Papa’s Top Secret Blueberry Smoothie

Ingredients:

1 banana
1 c. pineapple chunks with juice
1 c. plain yogurt
1-1/2 c. Silk pure coconut milk
1 tbsp. Coco Lopez cream of coconut
2 c. frozen blueberries

Combine banana, pineapple, yogurt, milk, cream and frozen blueberries in blender and blend on med-high speed until smooth. Enjoy immediately. Serves 3-4.

Tip: This recipe works best with frozen berries. If using fresh berries, be sure to add ice to the mixture to ensure proper consistency.

In case you’re wondering, these gorgeous goblets are vintage “moonstone”. I started collecting it last year while shopping flea markets with Mema. She love dishes and has collected so many beautiful pieces over the years. It makes shopping much more fun when you have a certain style that you collect. You’d be amazed at all the places it pops up once you start looking for it. These lovely goblets were a 30th birthday gift from Mema and Papa and I smile each time I put them to use.
