Berry Berry Smoothie

Make this simple recipe with your favorite combination of blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries. The nutrition facts at Calorie Count are based on blueberries because those are my favorite berries...although the blueberry blackberry smoothie is right up there...

Berry Berry Smoothie


1 cup of your favorite berries - you can use frozen partially thawed or fresh
1 cup 0% Greek yogurt
1/4 cup almond milk
1 T honey - or agave
1 T ground flax seed
a small handful of ice if you are using fresh berries

Directions for smoothies are so difficult to follow, so pay close attention:

Put it all in a blender and blend. Start slowly in spurts and keep your hand on the lid so it does not explode all over the place. Trust me on this.


If you want it more like ice cream, skip the milk

If you want it to the point where you can drink it with a straw, add a little more milk.

If you don't have flax seed, try a scoop of oat or wheat bran. Both add great stay with you fiber.

If you are a thick smoothie person, add a few whole berries to the top for a pretty garnish.
