When my sister and I were younger, my Grandmom would invite us over for tea. She would pull out her teacups and saucers and serve tea with blueberry jam and walnut butter sandwiches. (I think she knew how much my sister and I loved our PB&J's!) She would serve the sandwiches on toasted white bread---ends trimmed---drizzled with just a touch of honey. My sister and I would go bananas. This smoothie is a take on this happy childhood memory.
