As kids, we were waiting for school to end so the summertime food extravaganza could start! We used to visit and play in the forest, filled with abundance, new fruits, new smells, and animals. Both feed my soul as well as my belly! Running around playing in the forest and eating were my favorite things to do as a child.
Coming back from berry picking, the smell in my kitchen was fantastic. Making jellies, knedle, pierogi with berries (heaven on a plate), berry pies and more. There is no other fruit in the forest which has as many health benefits and such enormous healing powers as berries. Summer reminds me of my childhood, so I decided to share my favorite berry smoothie recipe.
