After a day of working hard out on the farm, I like to nourish my body with a smoothie. It’s my reward for all the sweating and work I just went through. I have many variations of smoothies that I do and this is my current “go-to” version.

I generally don’t add any sweetener to my smoothies, because when you don’t consume sugar on a regular basis, fruit is suddenly much sweeter than it ever was before. If you need to, add a touch of raw honey or maple syrup, but I doubt you will find it necessary. Isn’t it amazing how our taste buds change and adapt when we get rid of all the junk? I mean think about it a moment. How often do people eat strawberries or other berries, covered with sugar? We, as a society have become so used to the added sweeteners (natural or not) that we don’t think that the berry itself is sweet anymore.

Poor strawberries.

The same goes for the berries contained in this smoothie. Blueberries, red raspberries, blackberries. I had red raspberries all the time when I went to my grandparents’ as a kid. My grandparents grew a huge patch of red raspberries right along side their garden. I think they must have been one of their favorite berries. Those and black raspberries which grew behind our shed in the back yard. But the berries I ate, whether at my grandparents’ house or at my own – were never berries alone. They were berries in sugar syrup and spooned over ice cream. More sugar.  At my grandparents’ I would have big bowls full of just berries…but those berries were also sprinkled in sugar.

Time to let those berries speak for themselves.
