no yogurt smoothie

this is my favorite quick smoothie. who doesn't love them? and, the easier the better.

1/2 ripe banana
1/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup ice
1/4 cup of berries (whichever you like)
splash of vanilla extract

blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.
like i said, it's simple.

first things to know

the first thing you need to know is how to properly read a package or ask your server exactly what's in a meal you plan to eat. they word ingredients in various ways. i always tell a server that we have severe food allergies and need to know what's in a dish. if they can't or won't tell you, it's probably a sign you want to go somewhere else.
