Marion, Mint, & Lime

The days are getting warmer, and a slushy cold drink sounded delicious this afternoon. The mint is growing in the garden, so I plucked a liberal supply and brought them into the kitchen with me. Frozen marionberries mixed equally with limeade were placed in the blender. A packet of stevia to sweeten (to taste) and a handful of fresh mint leaves were added. After blending until everything was slushy and smooth, this smoothie was put in glasses, garnished with mint, and served for a refreshing pick-up on the day. Yum! It was delish!


  1. We have a smoothie almost every day, I haven't thought about putting mint in one, I have some growing and will try it soon.


  2. Oh that is...just cruel!
    I LOVE marion berries, they are not available here.

  3. Marionberries? Never heard of them, which, of course, must mean that they don't exist. ;>

    That drink certainly does look heavenly. What a wonderful photo!

  4. I have never tasted a marionberry, but your smoothie looks delicious and beautiful too. I have just come for a visit by way of Vee's blog. What a wonderful place to visit. I will be back - often.

  5. Fellow gluten free blogger,

    I'm staring a carnival blog as a one-stop shopping place for gluten free information. A blog carnival is like a magazine of articles that gets published on a schedule. Every 3 months (I hope it catches on so that we can do this more often), bloggers submit an article related to the GF lifestyle to be published by the host blogger. We hope that we can all learn from each other and introduce our readers to other food allergy sites out there.

    Joining the community of contributors is a great way to get more readers to your blog. It's easy to do. Just follow the below link and fill in the quick form linking one of your best blog posts to the carnival page. Topic areas will include recipes, tips, research, advice/support, etc. Your post will get posted along with contributions from other GF bloggers.

    The deadline for the next carnival is July 25, 2009. Be sure to let your readers know about the carnival. It'll be posted on August 1st at

    Looking forward to reading your post,
