So why do fruit smoothies always have to be healthy? Why can't they be decedent every once in a while??? I'm breaking all the rules and making these smoothies sweet and luscious (we'll have them for dessert instead of breakfast - why not?)
Blueberries and Cream Dessert Smoothie
Makes 4-6 smoothies
2 cups vanilla yogurt
2 cups crushed ice
1 cup frozen blueberries
2-4 cups whole milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
heavy cream (optional)
Put the first 6 ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into serving glasses and if desired, drizzle a touch of heavy cream on top or each glass (I highly recommend).
Bonus Photography Tip:
This is how I set up this shot. Note the natural light from the window. I used a scrap of black poster board for the background, and I propped a piece of white poster board on the left side of the shot to reflect some light back onto the shadowy side of the glass. Then I zoomed in and clicked away. I like the end result. Best part... it cost 0$.
