Banana Blueberry Milkshake & Canoes

I have talked about Michigan Blueberries before, but didn't get a chance to pick them up before this weekend. Since I picked up the pack of blueberries I have used it for our breakfast regularly. Yesterday I made blueberry buttermilk pancake, but forgot to take the picture. And today I made Banana Blueberry milkshake with honey. This has the consistency of smoothie, but made with milk instead of yogurt.

This was a great way to begin this gorgeous weekend. To make the most of it, we decided to go canoeing. This was my first canoe trip, a 3.7 mile trip from Argo park to Gallup park and it was fantastic! It took us about an hour and a half to finish the trip!

2 ripe bananas
two handful blueberries
1 1/4 glass cool milk
1 tspoon honey (I used raw Michigan honey)

Just put everything in the blender and pour it to glasses and serve immediately.

Here are some pictures from our canoe trip. The day was warm, the water cool and we saw ducks, geese, heron and other birds on the way. It was the perfect end to the perfect day which began with a glass of simply delicious milkshake.

Maybe sometime we can meet in northern MI, and you can canoe on Torch River too. If you guys get the chance to make a long weekend, and you like canoeing, you might also want to try part of the Au Sable. It's also a National Scenic Byway, for a nice day's drive.
