Still, it's warm enough to enjoy tall, frosty drinks. Grandma L joined us today for a 4th of July family meal and I made her a favorite drink...iced coffee with lots of ice and half and half.
Another favorite around here are smoothies. I like mine without banana added but most everyone else likes to add the bananas. Since this is berry season and there were leftovers from the sourdough waffles with berries and whipped cream that were a hit at our meal, it was easy to make a nice tall berry freeze beverage. The berry mixture included fresh ollaberries, blueberries, red raspberries and strawberries.
In a blender place about two cups of ice cubes, a cup or so of mixed berries, a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream, a cup of milk, and 1/2 cup of yogurt for some tang to offset the berries. Since these were dead ripe berries they were plenty sweet. If yours are less sweet, you may need to add some sugar.
