Summer Berry Smoothie

Smoothies use the whole fruit, not just the juice, so you get all the benefits of the fiber and the vitamins. These berry smoothies use frozen fruit, which keep the smoothie thick and creamy.


Preparation time: About 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

1 cup fresh or frozen berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries

1 frozen banana

1 cup vanilla yogurt

1/2 cup orange juice, lemonade, or milk (plus more for thinning, if necessary)

  1. Peel the banana.

  2. Combine all the ingredients in a blender.

  3. Blend on high until smooth.

    Add more liquid if the smoothie is too thick.

  4. Serve immediately.
