Was it the sun or the smoothie?

Last year for spring break we didn't leave the Pacific Northwest, in fact, we only went south to the next county. I swore I would never do that again (be stuck in the rain for no reason....) So this year I started planning early and found a direct flight from our small town to San Diego! Whoo-hoo! My first (and best) mom friend lives there and we took another family with us. We rented a house near the beach through (best idea ever) and soaked up the sand and sun and laughter. While there we ate at The Mission, a lovely restaurant open for breakfast and lunch. They have a smoothie on their menu that was amazing. I make smoothies at home but thought they didn't count unless they only contained whole foods. But sometimes I need to let loose and this is one of them because this thing is amazing! Here is my version:

Blend until smooth (obviously):

1/2 banana
1/2 cup frozen berries
1/2 cup ice
1-2 cups apple juice
1 tsp brown sugar

Cheers! Salud! Whoo-hoo!
