Morning Berry Smoothie

NOTE: Before you go crazy adding oils to food – though not a bad idea – check out some tips first on cooking with oils here.
I’m not a fancy smoothie person, but a good smoothie I do enjoy. The simpler the better, because it means I’m more likely to make it again (and again and again…). Healthy habits…bring it on.
What you’re gonna need… Really any fruit. We stock strawberries and blueberries in our freezer year round. You can either buy them in bulk at Costco or pick them fresh and then freeze them. We have several farms and farmer markets near us that are phenomenal, and we take advantage of the fresh berries when they are in season.
Here is what we normally do in the morning, several times a week.
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 fresh banana
2 cups not-from-concentrate orange juice
essential oils
Throw everything in the blender and blend until smoothie.

Pour into a wide-mouth mason jar and serve with a big smoothie straw

Simple, right? I put measurements up there, but they aren’t specific and we certainly don’t use a measuring cup. We’ve run out of strawberries and done all blueberries. We’ve thrown in mango. We’ve thrown in some frozen spinach (because it keeps the nutrients and masks the bitter taste). You have complete freedom.
And then comes the really fun part – throw some oil drops in that smoothie and give it one more pulse in the blender. Easy to add is Wild Orange, Lemon, and Grapefruit. But you can also through in OnGuard for extra immunity support, especially during cold and flu season.

If you decide to purchase oils today through the links below, I sure would appreciate it if you plug in 4641685 as the “Referrer ID” at checkout. Little Bear Oils is one way that God provides for our family, and I so appreciate your support. Thanks!

If you’d like more information about how to receive wholesale pricing on your oils (without any commitment to sell them), I’d love to chat more. You can contact me here.
