Purple Lava

This is my very favorite smoothie in all the world. It's wonderfully thick, cold and absolutely delicious. Last year when we had an abundance of strawberries and blueberries I came up with this wonderful concoction. It has been dubbed "Purple Lava" by my husband because it is so thick. It is purple. It pours like lava.

Thus ... Purple Lava.

I'm going to make this tomorrow morning--or maybe tonight! I have all the stuff to put it together, and my kids love trying good smoothie combinations.

Thanks for your instructions/recipe!
