Blueberry Smoothie

I have had some ladies ask about the blueberry smoothie.

Tahini is ground seseme seeds. (just like peanut butter) We use it in salad dressings, desserts, and smoothies. It is one of our staples in our pantry because of the great taste and high calcium level. Just remember to keep it in the fridge after opening.

We are currently on vacation and do not have the recipe with us, but we will tell you how we make it. (we don't really mesure anything)
We make this in a vita-mix and it REALLY needs to be made in a high-speed blender, otherwise it is VERY grainy and not-too-pleasant for a "smoothie".

This recipe makes 2 servings~
2 Frozen Bananas
1 1/2 C. Frozen blueberries
1 Large handful of almonds
1 Tablespoon Tahini
1 Tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup or Honey
As much water to your liking. We normally put in up to a half of a cup because we like ours VERY thick. We like adding 'bee pollen' to ours when allergy season is here. (But we normally end up using it year round)

To give you a clue as to where we are tonight, we are at a friend's home overlooking Puget Sound. Were are RIGHT on the water, and the view is just breathtaking. More adventures to come later.
