Smooth Move

I tend to fall into ruts, especially when it comes to breakfast. Toast and coffee are my default, which is no ho-hum solution when it includes Dave's most excellent sourdough bread and some of Carol Boutard's crazy-good preserves, not to mention Trailhead Roasting's impeccably roasted coffee.

But this time of year there's usually a partial hallock of berries from the farmers' market sitting around, leftover from shortcake or some other goodness, and a big tub of Nancy's yogurt in the fridge. Throw them in a blender and it's like hitting the ejector button on an F-14A Tomcat when it comes to getting out of that breakfast rut.

Blueberry Smoothie

1 c. plain yogurt
1/2 c. blueberries or other fruit
1/2 banana
1/2-1 tsp. sugar, or to taste (optional)

Put all ingredients in blender and blend till smooth. Stop blending and scrape down sides of blender. Pulse again to combine. Pour into 10-oz. glass and prepare for takeoff!
