Ingredients & Variations

Berries: Frozen or fresh can be used in this recipe. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries are all found in the frozen food aisles year round, or seasonally in the produce section.

Yogurt: This adds protein and probiotics. Use your favorite brand, or make your own with this easy Instant Pot recipe. Toss in a cup of berry-flavored yogurt from the store for extra sweetness.

Coconut Milk: Give your smoothie some tropical taste and healthy fats to fill you up and curb cravings for unhealthy foods. Substitute other plant-based milks like oat, almond, or soy, or use dairy milk.

Sweeteners & Flavoring: Honey or maple syrup are alternatives to sugar. Keto followers might prefer stevia, monk fruit, or other carb-free sweeteners. Experiment with other flavorings besides vanilla. Try almond, coconut, or the many berry extracts that are available, including cherry and cranberry.

Variations: The options are endless when it comes to smoothies. Toss bananas, apples or other non-citrus fruit into the blender. A few leaves of fresh spinach and kale will give you your daily greens. Add flax seeds or protein powder to the blender, or draw some ideas from other delicious smoothie recipes like blueberry banana, strawberry mango, or this triple berry made with chia seeds.

Tips & Tricks

Leftovers?

  • The freezer is your best option for storing leftovers, since blended fruit will oxidize and brown in the refrigerator. Use zip top freezer bags or stasher bags.
  • Freezing in jars or cups is not optimal because it will lose it’s consistency when it thaws. Instead, try freezing in ice-cube trays for quick blend-and-go mornings. All the ingredients are premixed!
  • You can also get results if you have an ice cream maker, which will turn your drinkable smoothie into a freezer-friendly spoon treat.
