Berry Best Smoothies~ summer in a glass!

(Originally made 7/9/2008)
Last year we bought a fancy schmancy blender (BlendTec) all excited about making healthy smoothies, juice etc.   It's mainly been put to use making milkshakes and mixed drinks, but I've been hoarding a lot of smoothie/slushie recipes so I've started giving them a try with all the nice in season fruit we've been getting.    My raspberries were real tart, so I added a heaping tablespoon of raw sugar to the blender with the fruits.   I also used fat -free skim instead of the half n half, but next time I'd use some light yogurt.

This is my first picture with my new camera and glass, so bear with me   :)
