WWWAT: Summertime

***Since this was indeed a very tasty smoothie, I thought I would share what I put in it to make is so deliciously yummy. Melissa and I made a ton of smoothies this past spring and stumbled across adding some sort of natural juice mix into making it so much tastier and still keeping it totally healthy! The Bolthouse juice is my favorite, and although it is expensive, I broke up the cost figuring that a $4 container will make about 10 smoothies (with enough leftover for me to sip whenever i want :)***

-half a banana
-about 5 strawberries
-about a half cup of blueberries
-a whole nectarine (minus the pit!)
-and about 3/4 cup of bolthouse berry juice (you can use any kind, that's just the kind i had)
-as much ice as you like... to make it thicker or more runny

This time around for WWWAT I completely didn't have time to go out and find some specific shots... however, comma, I had these and realized that they are indeed one of my favorite parts of summer. So here ya go... the joy of fresh fruit to make smoothies :)

If you enjoyed these and would like to see more summertime photos, head on over to Rachel at American Mum and check it out!

Don't you need a really good blender for smoothies, mine always turn up like 'fruit chunkies' doesn't *that* sound yummy!
