Here's a healthy drink that's good for breakfast or snack! You can prepare this delicious Easy Berry Smoothie with fresh or frozen berries, so feel free to make it the whole year-round!
Don't know about you, but on weekday mornings, a smoothie and a cup of coffee is my go-to breakfast -- before rushing out of the door.
Oh! If you like your smoothie on the sweet side, add a bit more honey in this recipe. I prefer mine slightly tart. 🙂
- Berries - a mix of your favorite berries, fresh or frozen. If you're using frozen berries, you don't even need to thaw them. Just add them directly to your blender and mix.
- Honey - mildly-flavored honey would be excellent.
- Almond milk - you can use sweetened or unsweetened; that's up to you.
- Yogurt - I generally use plain yogurt, but if you already have a berry-flavored yogurt that you like, go ahead and use that.
Just be aware that any other flavors might not go well with the berries.
Start by rinsing and draining all the berries, if using fresh ones.
Add everything on a blender (photo 1).
Add yogurt, honey, and almond milk (photo 2).
Blend until you get a smooth consistency (photo 3).
Pour smoothie into mugs (photo 4).
Garnish your mixed berry smoothie with fresh mint leaves, if desired.
- You can use any combination of berries that you like. Just remember that you might need to adjust the amount of honey, depending on the tanginess or sweetness of the fruits.
- You can replace the almond milk with any other type of milk. I usually use hazelnut milk interchangeably with almond milk for this smoothie.
- You can store this berry smoothie in the refrigerator for no more than 24 hours -- and make sure you place it in a container (or mug) with a tight, sealed cover.
