The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Berry Melody Yogurt Smoothie

Frozen berry mix is main ingredient.

Today, I bought some PLAIN yogurt.  Been feeling a little sick lately, and I know yogurt is good for the intestines.  Mixing it with a bunch of different berries just makes it even better.  I made a Berry Medley Yogurt Smoothie.  The frozen berries included blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries, which are anti-oxidants (anti-aging foods).

In the blender, I poured about a cup of plain yogurt.  Then I added the dry ingredients, which are pictured below.  I topped that with about two cups of frozen berries.  I mixed the concoction.  I felt that it was a bit thick so I added 1 cup of water.   

Powdered ingredients were included.

I added ginger, grape seed complex, Echinacea, cinnamon, a sprinkling of mint flakes, and some SweetLeaf stevia.  I added these powders because of their healing powers.  You can add some of these or leave them out.  Just know that this type of smoothie will need some sweetening.  I used the Echinacea and grape seed complex because they help the immune system. 

The end result was the Berry Melody Yogurt Smoothie.

Adding the cup of water helped because I was able to dispense the smoothie.  I am blessed because three of my kids tried it.  I say blessed because they were my willing guinea pigs.  I warned them that it was not sweet.  They still tried it out.

This sure beats soda, 
which is thought to deplete 
calcium from bones. 

What about you, my readers? Have you ever tried a yogurt smoothie? What fruits would you add to a smoothie? Would you add veggies? I hope you would consider smoothies for your diet. They are a wonderful alternative to sodas.

May God bless you with His peace and wisdom, my beloveds.
