A delicious 3-ingredient smoothie with an optional crunchy twist... mulberry crumbles!

Stick some fruit or dried fruit in your smoothie and grab a spoon, for a fun twist. There's also the added benefit of slowing down and enjoying each mouthful, as oppose to guzzling a smoothie in seconds.

Ingredients (Adjust amounts and proportions to taste):

1 C blueberries: fresh, dried, or frozen
7-10 medium Bananas (any variety you like): fresh or frozen
1 C dried mulberries (optional)
drinking water (as needed to blend smooth)

Equipment:

blender
Food processor to grind mulberries (optional, some blenders will handle this too)
knife
spoon

Directions:

    1. If a crumble crust is desired, put dried mulberries in food processor with the S-blade (or a blender that can handle it), and run them alone and dry a bit to break them up into a crumbly crunchy yumminess. Remove and set aside.

    2. If using fresh blueberries, set aside a few for garnishing and/or mixing in afterward.

    3. Place bananas, blueberries and water in blender and blend until smooth, adding water to achieve desired smoothie thickness.

    4. If not serving right away, refrigerate until serving.

    5. (optional at serving time): Sprinkle dried mulberry crumbles on top to create a "crust" along with a few whole fresh blueberries if available and serve.
