The fruits I used this morning created a beautiful deep redish purple smoothie. I used 1 small Banana, 1/2 cup (about 12) Black Cherries, 5 Strawberries, 1/4 cup Blueberries (about 20) and some apple juice. The berries were all frozen and I discovered after inspecting the packages that they are from all over the world. The blueberries are from Canada, cherries from Chile and the strawberries are not labeled (can I assume they are from the US?).
I would prefer to have fresh fruit in my kitchen but it is March and good fruit is not available. I would also prefer to have fruit that is grown closer to where I live. That is my challenge for the summer.... locally grown smoothies! At least it is all organic.
