One of our favorite ways to enjoy berries, a June Foods of the Month, is in smoothie form! Smoothies can be an instant meal that takes only minutes to make. Stock your fridge and freezer with berries, non-fat Greek yogurt, and/or low-fat milk, and ice to make these OrganWise Guys-approved summer berry smoothies in minutes. Enjoy for breakfast or a snack!
Triple Berry Smoothie– A long time favorite, this triple berry smoothie is packed with powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and is high in fiber. This recipe uses strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries for a tasty and energizing drink.
Banana Berry Smoothie – Add a banana into your favorite berry smoothie recipe. We used a 1 cup mixture of strawberries and blueberries, then added one sliced banana with 5 ice cubes and a splash of low-fat milk. The result is a beautiful, light purple smoothie that is almost too pretty to drink.
Blueberry Avocado Smoothie – Get a dose of veggies with your berry smoothie. Blend together 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 an avocado, 1/2 a banana, 1 cup fresh spinach leaves, a drizzle of honey, 1/2 cup of water and 5 ice cubes. Pour and enjoy!
Peanut Butter Berry Smoothie – The good fats in this smoothie (thanks to the peanut butter) keep you feeling full longer. Blend together 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup strawberries, 1 tbsp. peanut butter, 1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt, a splash of low-fat milk and 5 ice cubes. Drink for breakfast or a snack.
