Mulberry Batida


James grew up in the Dominican Republic, so that’s why we call this a batida rather than a smoothie, but it’s really the same thing. James makes a batida of some kind to drink with lunch most days. Sometimes he throws in other fruits too like papaya, mango, or just leaves it banana flavored.

3 small bananas, frozen (maybe equal to 1 or 2 American bananas)

1/2 C mulberries (or any other berry)

2 C milk

6 ice cubes

1/2 t vanilla

1/4 t cinnamon

1 T sugar (optional depending on the sweetness of the fruit)

Blend in a blender until smooth.

Serves 2-4
