Banana-Berry Smoothie

Perfect time of the year to start making smoothies again.  I find it economical to make my own, as well as controlling the amount of sugar and other 'mystery' ingredients.  This recipe is for the basic version, but you can always add goodies to your smoothie such as a handful of spinach or basil or other fruits such as mango.  Make it how you love; but I'll give you the secret ingredient for making it sweet without adding sugar.

This makes a 15 oz. drink:

1 cup of unsweetened soy milk or almond milk (I use half of each cuz I'm crazy like that)
1/2 of a lg banana (or 1 small banana)
1 cup of frozen strawberries, rinsed
1/4 cup of frozen blueberries, rinsed
Squeeze of fresh lemon, about 1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
(throw in a handful of spinach if you like)

Blend in a blender until smooth.  You don't need ice; it's already cold from the berries.  You don't need extra sugar; it's already sweet from the berries and vanilla.    Suck it down!  (careful of brain-freeze)
