|1||banana, not too ripe||1|
||frozen berries||170 mL|
|1/2 cup||orange juice, approximately||125 mL|
Place all the ingredients in the order given except the orange juice into a blender. (I use a small drink blender.) Add enough juice to bring the mixture to the 2 cup (500 mL) mark. Process until well mixed.
