It's slightly warmer in the mornings and lighter when we are walking to catch the bus. Slushy, slightly frozen drinks do not appeal when it is dark and 40 degrees. With the change in season, a smoothie has appeal again. This one: rice milk (calcium fortified), fage plain green yogurt, frozen strawberries and raspberries from last summer, some frozen cherries and mango (store bought) and some fresh spinach. I now have a counter quick blender (Magic Bullet) which works like a charm.
