Banana Blueberry Smoothie

Something you should know, I am certainly a creature of habit.  Anyone who knows me well can attest to the fact that I pretty much eat the same thing for breakfast, snack, and lunch each day. For those of you nosey curious people, I eat peanut butter on an English muffin with fruit for breakfast, yogurt for  a snack, and usually either a turkey sandwich or veggie wrap for lunch. This line-up has been a part of my life for oh about 11 years now! I know, just crazy for someone who loves food so much. But let me defend myself, these items are taken very seriously…..the fruit with my English muffin is carefully chosen, the English muffin is wrapped up and placed on the top of my lunch bag so it does not get squished, my yogurt is well, yogurt, but my lunch is meticulously made the night before in such a fashion that the ending result has been admired for years now. I’ll have to take a picture soon to show you this because words do not do it justice. Okay so what does that whole spiel have to do with a smoothie?? Basically the other morning, I was having my normal breakfast and Matt came downstairs to join me and claimed there was nothing to eat for breakfast so he was just going to wait until lunch! What?!? No way is my husband going to go breakfast-less on a Saturday morning! Unlike me, he didn’t want what he has every day at work- yogurt with granola and a banana. So I checked the refrigerator, cabinets, freezer and bread basket and sadly did realize he was right. But then I eyed up the on-its-last-leg banana and dusty blender on the shelf and before I knew it, I was blending away and whipping up a delicious and nutritious breakfast. Ironically, he still had his yogurt and banana like normal but he happily slurped away without noticingJ
