L’Earth Day-Huckleberry Smoothie


  • 1/3 cup organic strawberries – fresh or frozen
  • Half a banana- you can peel, wrap in parchment and keep in freezer for smoothies- frozen or room temperature work, use what you have
  • 1/3 cup non-fat vanilla yogurt, organic

The featured ingredient- 1/3 cup frozen organic blueberries or huckleberries! We call these “brain-berries” as the antioxidant properties are crucial for brain development.

Dump into your blender, whirl and enjoy.


L’Earth Day Italia is celebrated April 22, the same as California. It is a worldwide event. How is the date selected? It is one month and two days after the spring equinox.

So busy on the Monterey Peninsula this weekend. Beautiful beach weather.

Too much delectable food from the Pebble Beach Food and Wine? Balance it out with this healthy smoothie and head outdoors. Find adventure.

Hubby is at the Sea Otter Classic. He loves all things mountain biking.


We are going to MEarth to support sustainable and organic gardening and education. Bella Sophia’s school supports this annual event. Can’t make it to Carmel Valley to get a treat from the all organic “smoothie bike”? Enjoy this variation, a huckleberry smoothie from Huckleberry Hill.

What is your favorite smoothie recipe? What adventure did you enjoy this weekend? I would love to hear from you. Huckleberry Hugs, Maxine (AKA Molly)
