Ingredients:

  • 1 cup mixed berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries)
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • Ice cubes (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Start by rinsing the mixed berries under cold water to remove any dirt or debris. Pat them dry with a paper towel.
  2. In a blender, combine the mixed berries, peeled banana, plain Greek yogurt, and orange juice.
  3. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, add a tablespoon of honey to the mixture. This step is optional, as the natural sweetness of the fruits may be enough for your taste buds.
  4. Secure the lid tightly on the blender and blend on high speed until all the ingredients are well combined and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  5. If desired, add a handful of ice cubes to the blender and blend for an additional 20 seconds to make the smoothie colder and frostier.
  6. Once the desired consistency is reached, pour the Berry Blast: Refreshing Antioxidant Smoothie into glasses.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy this nutritious and delightful smoothie!

Tips:

  • Feel free to customize this recipe by using your favorite berries or adding other fruits such as cherries or blackberries.
  • To make the smoothie even creamier, substitute the plain Greek yogurt with vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt.
  • If you prefer a thicker smoothie, use frozen berries instead of fresh ones. This will also eliminate the need for adding ice cubes.
  • For an extra nutritional boost, consider adding a tablespoon of chia seeds or flaxseeds to the blender before blending.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. However, the smoothie is best enjoyed fresh.
