Berry Smoothie

With the weather getting nicer, I've been getting back into my habit of walking to work. This smoothie makes an excellent walking companion.

One recipe fits perfectly in my travel mug. But, it looks prettier in the glass.

Berry Smoothie
{Makes 1 smoothie}

1 container of homemade Greek yogurt {~6oz}
1 C frozen fruit {I used blueberries, raspberries and strawberries}

Combine the yogurt and frozen fruit in your blender.

Blend until smooth.

Pour into a glass or insulated mug and serve.

What I love about this smoothie is that it uses protein packed Greek yogurt {we use homemade}, which has a thicker consistency than regular yogurt.  This means I can eliminate the need for a banana in my smoothie.  This is great because (a) bananas make my mouth itch (oral allergy syndrom), and (b) bananas tend to over-power the other flavors.  This smoothie has a delicious berry flavor, and the frozen berries give a nice texture to the smoothie.

  1. I'm going to try the greek yogurt in a smoothie, that sounds good. We're all banana fans here but the husband likes his without. The kids LOVE smoothies though and we make them often. So nice that you can walk to work. Tell me you didn't walk in the snow yesterday with a smoothie. :-)

  2. Looks delicious, I love a good smoothie too!! Yum!

  3. I have never met anyone else who gets an itchy mouth from a banana. I was starting to think I was the only one :) I read it is related to a ragweed allergy (which I definitely have). Too funny!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
