Ways to Make a Smoothie
You can make a smoothie with almost any food you wish, however, most use fruit or vegetables or a combination of them. I have seen recipes for a bacon and maple smoothie. That being said fruit smoothies are the most popular.
What Is the Difference Between a Milkshake and a Smoothie?
Milkshakes are dairy-based and are most commonly prepared using fruits, ice cream, and flavored syrups. Smoothies also contain fruits however they are usually made with yogurt and alternative kinds of milk, like almond milk, and use natural sugars like honey to sweeten the drinks.
How to Store a Smoothie
After you’ve made your Berry Good Smoothie, or any other type of smoothie, pour it into an air-tight container and place it in the fridge for 2-3 hours. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months. If stored in the refrigerator shake it will and enjoy it. If it was frozen allow it to partially thaw in the refrigerator and then place it back into the blender to mix it back into a smoothie.
History of the Smoothie
The first smoothies first appeared in the 1930s when health food stores in California began adapting Brazilian recipes and selling these pureed fruit drinks. Recipes for the “banana smoothie” and “pineapple smoothie” first appeared in the 1940s Waring Blendor cookbooks. The smoothie was popularized in the 60s and became mainstream in the 1990s when they were sold in coffee shops, cafés, and grocery stores as pre-bottled drinks.
The Metropolitan City of Los Angeles, California
The city of Los Angeles lies in a basin in Southern California. Adjacent to the Pacific Ocean extending through the Santa Monica Mountains and into the San Fernando Valley, it covers about 469 square miles. It is the seat of Los Angeles County, which is the most populous county in the United States with just over 10 million residents in 2020.
A Brief History of Los Angeles, California
Around 3000 BCE, the Los Angeles basin was occupied by the Hokan-speaking people and was later replaced by the Tongva people who migrated north to escape the drought in the Great Basin. They spoke a Uto-Aztecan language and called the Los Angeles region Yaa.
By the 1700s CE, there were around 5,000 native people living in the Los Angeles basin and were part of a sophisticated trading system of goods and included slavery. The first permanent non-native presence began when the Spanish Portolá expedition arrived on August 2, 1769.
In 1821 Mexico gained its independence from Spain and California came under the control of Mexico. This lasted until 1848 when the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed ending the war and ceding California to the U.S.
In 1848 gold was discovered in Northern California drawing miners from all over the world. Los Angeles became known as the “Queen of the Cow Counties” for supplying beef and other foodstuffs to hungry miners in the north.
With the arrival of U.S. citizens, disease and discrimination took a great toll on Native American Indians. Laws that discriminated against the Native American people, like the law that forbids Self-employed Indians from sleeping overnight in the city, weighed heavy on the Tongva peoples.
Remarkably, the Tongva have survived, and there are approximately 2,000 Tongva people still living in the area. They are dedicated to protecting the burial and cultural sites of the Tongva peoples.
Railroads and Shipping brought immigrants from all over the world to Los Angeles and the city is a diverse community and the second-largest city in the U.S.
Tourism in Los Angeles, California

Local produce like almonds, apricots, dates, figs, olives, avocados, grapes, lemons, melons, peaches, and strawberries are used often used in Los Angeles cuisine. Beef, pork, fish, and seafood are also heavily used in many dishes originating in the Los Angeles baisen.

How to Make This Berry Good Smoothie Recipe
You can use any fruit or vegetable to make this type of smoothie but in this recipe, we are using strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries for this smoothie. For this recipe, we are using 2 cups of berries, ¼ cup of yogurt, ¾ cup of milk, and ¼ cup of honey to make a taste and healthy smoothie.
I like the Ninja Smart Screen Blender because it has three sets of blades that cover the bottom, middle and top part of the blender and has a Smoothie setting. My set came with small, medium, and large pitchers. It has 6 pre-programmed settings, Puree, Smoothie, Ice Cream, Extract, Frozen Drink, and Chop, with 3 manual settings so you can run it as long and fast as you wish.Captin Cook – Taste the World Cookbook

This recipe is quick and easy to make and all ingredients in it are healthy. If you are using frozen fruit, ice is usually added to chill and thicken a smoothie. I like to use frozen fruit to prevent the flavor from being diluted by ice.
