Ingredients for making mixed berry smoothie

  • Mixed berries: You can use fresh or frozen mixed berries, but I prefer to use frozen as they give the drink a thick, creamy texture without using ice. Berries add a lot of vitamin C to this smoothie recipe.
  • Bananas: Again, you can use fresh or frozen bananas, but it's easier in the blender if not all of the fruit is frozen.
  • Greek yogurt: Add creaminess and a good source of protein to the mixed berry smoothie. But you can substitute more milk or a vegan yogurt if you prefer.
  • Almond butter: This is a great option to add extra fat and fiber to the smoothie. Nut butters can really enrich the nutrition of a smoothie to make them more satiating.
  • Milk: You can use any type of milk you want or you can even use water if you prefer. You only need a little liquid to start the blender.

Ingredients to make the recipe: bananas, berries, milk, Greek yogurt and almond butter.

Put all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Try the smoothie and add more mixed berries if it is too thin or additional milk if it is too thick. You can also add a little sweetener if you prefer it to be sweeter. The recipe is enough for two 12-ounce cups, which is what is shown.

What better way to improve your health than with a fresh and delicious meal in a glass! Frozen Banana, Almond Butter, and Almond Milk add the perfect amount of creaminess with a hint of nutty flavor to my family's Triple Berry Smoothie.

Arrange things by adding granola and / or fresh fruit on top and then dip in with a spoon. There are no rules here, be creative and make it yours!

Tips for making this berry smoothie

  1. Use frozen berries to make the smoothie. This eliminates the need for ice that can dilute the drink. It also helps make the mixed berry smoothie smoother and creamier.
  2. Use a high speed blender. There is nothing worse than drinking a smoothie and eating a banana in your mouth. If you don't have a high-speed blender, I recommend shaking it occasionally with a long spoon and mixing for an additional 1 minute.
  3. Use the milk you want in this recipe. I like to use almond milk, but you can use any dairy or plant-based milk you have available.

Frequent questions

Can you make this mixed berry smoothie ahead of time?

For the best flavor and color, this smoothie is best enjoyed as soon as it's made. If you can't have it right away, cover it and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

For how long should you mix a smoothie?

Mix all ingredients for about 60 seconds so that all ingredients break and combine well. If you are using a low speed blender, you may need to mix it for an additional minute.

Can you use overripe bananas in this smoothie?

In fact, I prefer to use overripe bananas in smoothies. They have much more sweetness and natural flavor, in addition to being richer in antioxidants than only the mature ones. I often freeze overripe bananas to be ready for smoothies!

For healthier smoothies:

This is a delicious berry smoothie recipe packed with flavor, and it's a great breakfast to make when you're running out of time. That color is also quite special!
