Breakfast nectar - FRUIT SMOOTHIES

Here it is, somewhere between oatmeal porridge (winter) and tea on the patio (summer). It's the perfect season for a smoothie breakfast. My sister got us hooked on smoothies a few weeks ago. Lucky for us, there are three biiiig bags of Saskatchewan wild blueberries and one of lingonberries in the freezer just waiting to be smoothie-fied. I say there's no better way to get your daily dose of fruit. Here's our recipe:
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 chopped banana
1 tbsp ground flax
4 big spoonfulls plain yogurt
enough juice to blend it all
(currently using store-bought cranberry juice, but also used Saskatchewan cherry juice and my raspberry preserve syrup.)

Instructions: Blend!

Isn't this a marvellous glass? It's a souvenir from my childhood (yes, imagine, not broken after all these years...) Here's a closeup of the "Eskimo." Isn't he cute in pink?

Hello, Amy Jo, this has nothing to do with your blog. I have been searching hi and low for a playlist of the Good Show you did on Good Friday. We heard it on CBC BC and at 7:26 am we heard a version of a song, lyrics of which included "Dance like nobody's watching.." Is it possible for you to let me know who it was performing it? The podcast doesn't seem to have it.

Thank you! Now I'll spend some time poking around your blog.
