More Smoothies

This first recipe is my very favorite smoothie right now.  And my favorite way to eat it is in a bowl with a spoon, topped with granola and drizzled with honey.

1 packet frozen unsweetened acai
4-5 strawberries from Suzie's or JR Organics Farm
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
a slice (about the size of a quarter but a little thicker) fresh ginger, peeled
1 1/2 teaspoons cacao nibs
2 pinches local bee pollen
2 inches of frozen banana
1-2 dates, pit removed
1 cup (or more if needed) fresh pressed apple juice from Smit Farms

Blend all ingredients until smooth (about 2 minutes) in a very good blender.  Add more liquid if needed for good flow (you want to see the whole mixture moving).  Makes about 3 cups.

I recently got a hold of dragonfruit smoothie packets to test for the co-op as a possible new product.  They made the most beautiful smoothies, gorgeous magenta color, and my spouse actually preferred them to acai:

1 packet frozen dragon fruit
1/3 cup mango
a slice (about the size of a nickel) fresh ginger, peeled
1 kiwi, peeled, from Smit Farm
2 inches of frozen banana
1 cup orange juice from Schaner Farm (or apple)
1 date, pit removed
a tablespoon of local honey (more or less to taste)

(Follow the same instructions as above)
