A berry delicious time of year

It’s that time of year again!

No, not THAT time of year. Berry time! <grin>

I was in the grocery store with Grandma picking out some things for the great Father’s Day feast this weekend, and there were berries everywhere – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries…oh my!

Which got me thinking that it was about time to whip out my trusty Berry Delicious Smoothie recipe – the canola oil gives this treat a special energy boost. Perfect for my spring training.

Gotta jet! I’m slamming my smoothie and then heading out for practice before the weekend of celebration kicks off. Hope you’re doing something fun with your “father figures” this weekend.

P.S. I’ve included the recipe below. If you’re Gordon “Lightening” Smith, or any of my other competitors, close your eyes!


1 medium banana
1/2 cup blueberries, 125 mL
1/2 cup sliced strawberries, 125 mL
1/2 cup green tea, cooled, 125 mL
1/2 cup cranberry juice, 125 mL
4 ice cubes
2 teaspoons canola oil, 10 mL

Blend it all until it's smooth.


  1. For an additional flavor boost, replace the ice with another 1/2 cup of frozen strawberrys and/or blueberries. :-)
