Healthy Eats: Berrylicious Super Thick Smoothie

Here is a great smoothie recipe for you to tryout. It is super easy to make and you can change it up just by switching berries. It makes a great breakfast, snack, or dessert.

To serve 1:

1 Cup plain yogurt (I prefer yoplait It has 130 calories/0g Fat/19g Carbs/15g protein and 40% calcium)
1 small banana(I prefer mine frozen, but it works either way)
1 cup frozen berries of choice-strawberries, cherries, blueberries
  • Blend all ingredients together in a blender
  • Pour in a glass or bowl
  • Drink or eat with a spoon

Depending how frozen your berries/banana are it will turn out pretty thick which is why it makes a great dessert too, almost like frozen yogurt.

It is generally sweet enough for me, but sometimes your berries might be a little tarter than normal and honey is always a good option. Even better if you use local honey as I've heard it's supposed to help with allergies. As always check with your doctor before trying anything new to treat a health issue.

Wow that sounds great. what a good idea for left over banana's that are getting too soft to eat. i can throw them in the freezer so they don't go bad and use them later! Thanks for the tip!
